A sample from last meeting of things we enjoyed (thanks to Craig on Acet’s facebook page):

Hi all! Good seeing everyone at the meeting today! Here are the topics and order of the 5 minute Genki English review/warm up.

-Name-circle drill ending with “Nice to meet you”
-“How are you?” with gestures
-“I can___.” with gestures
-Junken
-Forward, back, right, left
-Pronouns-I, You, He, She, We, They- Is/are thirsty, etc
-Counting
-Age in pairs
-weather in pairs
-Greetings-Japanese to English
-Students ask teacher (I made a mistake at today’s meeting) “Do you like ____?” while teacher flips through flashcards.

Of course you can do any question/topic or order you want. I really like this activity because it’s fast paced, covers a lot of topics/questions and is only 5 minutes.
