With just a little effort, teachers can plan many activities to make the beginning of the school year go more smoothly for the entire class. Read on for some ideas of get-to-know-you games and activities that will help your students adjust to the new year and be comfortable with their new classmates.

Do you want to hear about a get-to-know-you game that will help kids struggling with shyness?

Other games can be more interactive, such as using skittles to prompt students to share facts about themselves in different categories.
