Music videos. And everyone can dance. You too.

There are a bunch of Kahoot! icebreaker templates that could work. You can use them to get to know about you by playing two truths & a lie, or to see what they’ve been up to or how many siblings they have etc. My high schoolers live for Kahoot!

Quizlet / gimlet/ Kahoot are all online games but kids have to have internet access. There are also polls that you can do.

Would you rather...

I'm doing 2 things for the main ice breakers (1) students are making an avatar and submitting it, and then we'll do Cross the Line in a Google Slide where they drag their avatar if the statement is true (2) Kahoot about me as the teacher that answers the same questions I'm asking the students. I've also had most of them before (I've been 6th grade and switched to 8th this year) so they might actually know the answers. Haha.

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.
