Bande dessinée. BD. Critiques de bandes dessinées. Actualité de Teacher Tom’s ping pong art We picked up this great idea the other day from ‘Teacher Tom‘. We were attracted by the a post titled -‘Boy Art‘ and we figured any idea that attract boys to try creative activities is definitely worth giving a go! We’ve always enjoyed offering the children marbles to paint with. It’s a fun creative exercise where the children dip marbles into paint … drop them into trays lined with paper and roll them around. It provides a wonderful opportunity for pattern making … and any one who’s been following our blog for any length of time will know we believe you can never have too many opportunities for colour mixing! Thanks to Tom we were able to add a new dimension to this popular activity. Using our removable tray-table-top we headed outside into our wonderful Melbourne, autumn weather … and using ping pong balls dipped in paint, instead of marbles, we set the children free to create! So, just like Tom’s students, our Red Group children used the straws to hit the balls around on the paper.

10 Great Classroom Icebreakers 1. Self-Portrait. Have your students draw themselves. After they have done this, collect the papers and hang them up for the whole class to see. Now have students try to guess who the artists was for each picture. 2. At the beginning of the year, write a short letter about yourself as the teacher. 3. Give each student an index card. 4. Have the students get into a circle. 5. Pass around a sheet of paper and some pens. 6. Call out any month of the year and have all students born in that month come up to the front of the room. 7. Have the students draw pictures about what they like to do, what their favorite foods are, and what is their favorite subject in school. 8. Don't forget about this old time favorite part of class. 9. Have students write three things about themselves on a piece of paper. 10. Line up the students in two lines facing each other.
