The ice-breaker that doesn’t feel like an ice-breaker
First Impressions Matter!
So many teachers want to do something fun on the first day. That’s a great idea and all, but ice-breakers and get-to-know-you activities tend to backfire more often than not. They make students, who are already nervous on the first day, do something they don’t feel like doing. It’s not fun. It’s awful.
Why do that to them? It’s rarely meaningful or memorable. And for middle schoolers, it brings flashbacks of elementary school… not a good move. What’s the point? We want to make them comfortable, but we end up doing the exact opposite. We want an easy win the first day, and this video does just that.
Reallyville makes videos that middle schoolers can relate to. There’s nothing out there like it. Use our videos once or twice a week, and you’ll connect with your students like never before. Try out our first couple of videos for free with no sign-up or any gimicky marketing tricks. Our videos speak for themselves, and if you use them with your students you’ll see what we mean.
