Materials: A small ball or koosh ball

How To Play: With players in a circle, have all players say
their names. The leader says his name, for example: “I am Steve,” and
then tosses the ball to another and says, “and this is Chris.” Chris
gets the ball and says, “That is Steve, I am Chris, and this is Amanda,”
and then throws the ball to Amanda. The game continues until all have
been called.

Plan for Success: Model and practice listening skills and ball tossing/catching before playing.

Variations: Play the game again, trying to beat the previous time or with multiple balls at the same time.
