6 Awesome Back to School Games

We are going to list down 6 amazing games for the kids to play at school. Let us first check the necessities of the games.

Checklist before the game starts:

  • A classroom full of kids.

  • A couple of self-adjustments to adjust to your respective surroundings.

  • A colourful ball for the first game.

  • A simple board for each kid in the 4th game.

  • A roller dice for the 5th game. 

Below is the list of 6 awesome games.

1. Roll The Ball and Get to Know 

In this game, you have to prepare a bunch of questions and write them on a sticky note and stick it to a colourful big ball. Each kid after their turn will roll the ball and send it to other kids. They will answer the two questions from the sticky notes pasted on the ball.

This will help the kids to know more about their friends and they will gradually be free to communicate with each other.

2. Talk of The Town

In this game, each kid will go up on an elevated region like a stage or simply on a chair and he or she will introduce themselves in a fashionable manner. This will boost their confidence level.

3. Pick a Stick and Create a Story

In this game, the kids will start saying a very short story in 3-4 lines, it can also be a phrase or moral. The next kid will have to pick a word from the previous teller and need to create his or her story. This will help them to be imaginative and confident.

4. Get to Know You

This is a board game. In this game, the kids are required to write on a piece of the board about themselves or what they aspire to become, or anything which they want to write. Then these boards can be hung in the classroom with their respective names on them.

This will improve their writing skills and also give them a sense of recognition.

5. Dice up

This is a dice game where the teacher will roll the dice and wherever the dice lands the kid next to it will recite a poem or dance or simply rhyme any nursery rhymes.

6. Snowball Fight

In this game, the kids can roll up waste papers and throw them at each other. This is a lot funnier than just throwing papers at each other. This will help them get comfortable on the first day at school.
