Kindergarten Lesson 3 – You can get all the students to sit in a circle. Circle activities are great for young learners. It brings a warmness to the beginning of the class. You can get everyone to sit cross-legged on the floor with hands, palm up near the knees.
A simple warm-up is to go around and slap the hand of the person next to you. When you slap the hand, that student has to say something (whatever has been introduced). For a very young class, simply saying ‘Hello’ when you slap the hand is good. You can add many varieties to this. Students can say, ‘My name is…’, ‘I am happy/sad/etc.’, ‘I am ___ years old.’, ‘I like…’, and any others you can think of.
