Here are two more ideas for the beginning of the school year:
My teacher did a Spanish version of “2 Truths and 1 Lie”. Basically she had us write down 3 simple sentences about ourselves but one of them must not be true. For example, My favorite color is blue. I have 3 brothers. I like to sing. The student would read out loud their sentence and the class would have to guess what the lie is.
