I plan to use the product with students during the first 5 days of school to help everyone get to know each other and ease the tension of being afraid to read and speak out in class.
We use this as an ice breaker for our new employee orientation classes. It's a great way to break up the awkward silence that accompanies the new classes. Highly recommended it to trainers.
Delivery was quick. Product just as described. I will not hesitate to buy here again.
We use the Icebreaker Thumball on the first day of all our new classes and it's always a hit!
We loved playing with the Icebreaker Thumball. It was fun and very motivational. I used it in teacher in-service because we had 3 new faculty members. We had fun, it allowed us a chance to get up out of our seats and PLAY!!! We learned a lot about each other we had never known. It was a wonderful experience. Thanks for creating this item!!
Congruent with its name, this thumball provides an excellent icebreaker activity! Although it looks like a soccer ball, it is not inflated... rather it is filled with soft stuffing... you don't have to worry about it bouncing around or [really] hurting anyone!
I use this ball to start our new employee orienations and other trainings. It has been a great way to get people laughing and to know one another better. It is fun to hear some of the responses. Especially from our Executives! I would highly recommend this to spice up any training session!
We do so many team sessions and meetings, I was getting bored with the same old icebreaker exercises. I like how this combined the physical with the cerebral. Good fun and high energy!
I used it for Summer Orientation. Students were not talking to each other. This was my first ice breaker, and it made the students interact and the following ice breakers did feel like pulling teeth.
