I am so Happy Today
Author: Anni Stavnskaer Pedersen
Facilitated by the teacher
The aim is to make the group start with a smile by connecting to each other.
- The teacher asks the students to stand up. They are to pretend that they are mingling at a party and go round and present themselves to the other guests.
- The teacher tells all the students to ask each other "Why are you so happy today?" All the students should ask and answer the question.
- The teacher discusses the outcome of the activity with the students using this prompt:
- "How was it for you to start the class this way?"
Most students will respond well to this activity as it can create a positive atmosphere in the group. However, some students may feel awkward and may need some encouragement to carry out the activity.
