Name Wave Teacher Training

This is a group energizer activity to help review all the names in the group. Show students an action and then say your name (For example, “name” and then at the same time, clap twice and raise both arms in the air.) The goal is to go around the circle as each person repeats the name/action as quickly as possible. When it gets back to you, you will do your action and say your name once again. All students in the circle will then have an opportunity to make an action and state their names going around the circle in the same format. Choose the student on the right to start. Continue until everyone has had an opportunity to state their own name and to demonstrate their action. This activity is similar to doing the “wave” at a sporting event.
