Lesson Warmers

There are at least four reasons to use lesson warmers. Click on the heading to take you straight to the section with activity ideas.

Getting To Know You Activities

Obviously, at the start of term or with a new class we want to create a good atmosphere and encourage rapport.

Engaging the students with a topic / Introducing a topic

For example, you're planning to study dependent prepositions. Not very thrilling, eh? Well, with the right warmer, almost any topic can be transformed into something thrilling (or at least made a little more exciting).

Reviewing a previous lesson

Maybe you want to revise some of yesterday's vocabulary or grammar while you wait for latecomers to arrive.

Just To Warm People Up

My classroom is freezing in summer (but boiling in winter!). Sometimes you just need to give students energy and warm them up.
