A "cool" warm up!
Here is a nice idea of a warm up. You can use it for intermediate or advanced students. I've already used with a beginner student but we have to know that their vocabulary and grammar are limited, anyway it's a good opportunity to practice the language. All you need is an envelope and 8 different pictures. Give the student the envelope closed and ask him/her to open it (the element of surprise!!) then tell that he/she has to choose 5 pictures among those eight and create a short story involving only the one he/she has chosen. The funny thing is that the stories are usually really crazy!! If you teach big groups it's a nice idea to have them in pairs for this activity. After some laughing you and your students are ready to start the class!
