I love the "Quick Circle" game! I used to do something similar and it is very helpful to get children to begin listening and anticipating what they are expected to do!

I like that Sticky Elbow idea! I think I'm going to try it with the children tomorrow! Thank you for the great ideas! :) I'm glad I found your blog!

I've been using sticky elbos, feet and knees for years now. It serves so many purposes; It can also be used as a reviewing tool to highlight learning connections and change and how sometimes they can be a little uncomofortable at first etc.

PS: adults quite like it to as an icebreaker..as it makes all involved look a little bit silly! and it can give you a quick snapshot of just how flexible,engaged and fun a group are likley to be from the outset.

Very cool ideas. We will be studying indigenous peoples this year and will have to try out some of these games then, as well as just for fun.
Thanks for sharing.

My group is too small for Sticky Elbows, but we will be playing Here, There, Where for sure. My preschoolers can do that as easily as my school-age children.
