Fun and Easy Get-to-Know-You Game!

Howdy friends!
Well I survived the first two weeks and I couldn't be happier with my group of kiddos! They are sweet. eager, and cheerful - a teacher's dream! :)
I come home pooped each afternoon
...but it's a good kind of tired.
Amen! I slept for over 12 hours last night! :)

Today I want to share a quick and easy way to get to know your class. I started out with a regular inflatable beach ball:
I bought mine at the dollar store - or you can order it on Amazon here.

Then I wrote a bunch of get-to-know you questions all over it:
 
We went outside and gathered in a circle.
A student threw the ball to a classmate and wherever their right thumb landed, that was the question they had to answer.

The kids had a blast and it was a fun way for them to learn interesting things about their new classmates. I loved seeing them let loose, laugh, and open up with one another. It really helped to gel our class - and set the tone for an awesome school year!

Want to pin this idea for later?

I'd love to know:
What is your favorite get-to-know-you game?!?
