What educators are saying

My summer school students loved this activity! It was a great way for us to get to know each other and build community during the first week of summer school.
the student was engaging but I wish he could have been an active participant. could not do that with google meet


This is a fun ice breaker activity to get to know your students! Have fun and build relationships that will set the tone of your classroom for the entire year. Build connections and learn the likes and dislikes of your students.

There are three types of questions to promote different discussions, asked in a variety of ways and practice different skills. These are fun, interactive and engaging.


  • yes/ no questions
  • would you rather
  • open ended questions

The open ended questions have a sentence starter for the students to help those who need it. Each type has ten different questions within it. There are 30 questions total.

This is great for the beginning of the year, summer school, or any time you want to get to know your students a little better!

Check out my preview to sample several of the cards!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Cindy H.

"This resource has been a fun and silly way to start conversations with my preschoolers during speech and language sessions. Since there are so many slides, I spread them out over the course of several sessions. Thank you!"
