Looking for an ice breaker that helps to create a positive environment in the classroom? I use this slideshow within the first couple days of the school year. A few years back, I came up with 'Las 5 P's de Srta. Petrini'. The 5 p's in English are Positivity, Passion, Personal Best, Preparation and Participation. I include them in English and Spanish. Although immersion is ideal in the classroom, I do not like students to feel intimidated, so I allow this discussion in English in Spanish I and II.
I include notes in order to provide an idea of how I work through the PowerPoint. Feel free to modify this in anyway you wish, change up the pictures or the P's. I know I'm always looking for ways to ease into the school year and create the environment I desire, and this works well for me.
I would love to hear feedback on how this works for you if you decide to use it.
