A fun, getting-to-know-you game to play in the first days of a new school year.
To begin this icebreaker activity, spread out a class set of name cards (prepared ahead of time). These cards include the names of every student in the class.
Each Know-That-Name Task Card describes a phonics clue and a type of movement. Read a task card to an individual, who then performs the action given as they find a name to match the phonics clue. Once everyone has found a spot, have each child say the name card they have landed on and wave to that classmate.
