Activities that Engage and Educate

Gynzy activities are specifically designed for student participation, while also reinforcing core skills such as spelling, sequencing, comparing & contrasting, logical deduction and more. 

We encourage teachers to invite students up to the board so that they have opportunities to participate in class. This proactive approach will encourage students to interact with one another as they pool their knowledge to try and work through fun activities such as:

We spend a lot of time at school, and sometimes a small diversion from standard coursework is to everybody’s benefit. Gynzy activities allow educators to introduce some fun into class while still reinforcing skills and concepts that are critical to academic success.

Warm-Up Activities to Start the Day

Our new morning routine has three different tools and activities to get the day started right: an interactive calendar, a weather chart, and a number of the day. The calendar refreshes students on days and dates and can mark special events. The weather chart is interactive and helps students track the weather. The number of the day, meanwhile, uses our base ten blocks and random number generator tools.

Morning Energizers offers multiple prompts and activities designed to get students moving around and are another fun way to start the day. These energizers also include drawing prompts that will encourage students to get creative to get the creative juices flowing. All of these prompts are enriched with our Spin the Wheel tool.

Other activities are aimed at getting students interacting with one another. Context Clues gives students 11 challenging exercises in which they must try to infer the meaning of new vocabulary through surrounding details. Sequence Stories gives students four jumbled images to be arranged into a logical timeline, encouraging discussions about past experiences. And our story prompts activity is a great way to encourage students to be creative and share their stories with others.

Fun Activities to Keep Students Engaged

Classroom activities and warm-ups are useful tools in engaging students and inspiring them to take an active interest in the concepts being discussed. Inviting students up to the Interactive Whiteboard is also a great way to encourage productive socialization. We encourage you to experiment to see what works best for your classroom.
