Instructor: Clio Stearns

Clio has taught education courses at the college level and has a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction.

Helping kids introduce themselves in the school setting will build their confidence and sense of community. This lesson offers some games and activities to help with introductions.

Why Introduction Games and Activities?

If you work with children, then you know that sometimes they need a little help making themselves known. Many children are used to adults doing the introductions for them and might not know how to introduce themselves in a group. Introductions can be really fun though, and learning how to introduce themselves will help kids build their confidence, sense of identity, and feeling of belonging to a community. This lesson will teach you some activities and games that you can use to help children introduce themselves to one another in the classroom setting.

Games for Introducing Yourself

Sometimes, the best way for children to try something new is through a game. Games keep learning fun and lighthearted and can make it easier for students to take risks. These games will go a long way toward easing introductions.
