This game helps to introduce the concept of sharing and also to assist in self-esteem development with the students. The game is very simple and can be used as an opening exercise to classroom discussion or by itself.
1. Students need to sit in a circle
2. One player, or the teacher can begin by whispering something nice about the student at the
of the circle;
3. Each player has to retain what was said before and add at least one new “nice” attribute about him or her;
4. By the time it reaches the player intended, (last one) he/she must repeat the entire sentence about him or her. Hopefully remembering all of the compliments and rattling them off.
This is a game that has been around for years, except with a new twist! Instead of mere “news” or gossip, we’ve replaced the telephone message with a compliment.
