The best activities I’ll use next year

One of my favourite things to do at the end of one year is take time to prepare for the next one. I can’t help it: I’m a planner…

Happily, late December brings lots of brilliant summary posts and blog reviews that help me catch up on all the things I’ve missed over the last twelve months. I’m always on the lookout for something a bit different to do at FELLOW – and here are a couple of activities that have been sent in my direction this month. I’m excited about trying these out in my classes in 2016!

  1. Pizza slices of my life

Nothing beats a student-led activity, except a student-led activity with drawing…

  1. Happiness graph

A lovely idea that isn’t just for IELTS preparation.

  1. Two kinds of people

A great getting-to-know-you activity based on the super-slick Tumblr of the same name.

  1. Hobby circles

A fun variation on the classic ‘find someone who…’ – perfect for FELLOW students (who’ve definitely done their fair share of finding people…).
