Activities to Build Connections with Students
- Create a window of time in the week when students can ask teachers anything. Does the virus scare you? What's your favorite color? What makes you mad? This time allows students to see their teachers as real people and teachers to connect more effectively with their students during a troubling time.
- Share mistake-making. Draw something with your students that show how you struggle with following directions or try a tongue twister. Students learn that others have struggles too.
- Autobiographical Mini-Movies or Trailers. Connect with students through shared life events.
