Icebreaker questions for girls and boys

When working one to one with a child it is worth having a stack of icebreaker questions to hand that you can use to break the ice and to keep conversation flowing. There are the obvious questions such as ‘favourites?, family? etc or you could go a bit deeper and ask more searching questions. Questions that require thinking skills. I have just made this little poster with questions that you could ask. Choose a couple of them to use at the beginning of your next session. It’s good if you have an answer too so you can compare your answers and to give the child chance to use their listening skills. Some of these questions would make good circle time questions, giving each child chance to give their opinion or answer.
