Shared counting, Countdown, Synergy, No Doubles.
This exercise is designed to get us all in synch. Get into a tight circle.
Everyone in the circle looks down at the ground and closes their eyes. We will try to count to 20 as a group. One player starts at the beginning “one.” Then a different player counts off “two.” With heads lowered and eyes closed no one should know who will speak the next number. If two players speak at the same time then the group must start again at “one.” The group can keep trying until they one player calls out “twenty.” At this point there is much rejoicing.
- Alphabet Circle – go through the alphabet instead of numbers
- Word at a time – If two words come out a the same time story restarts.
