Find a soft ball. Have the class stand in a circle.
Begin by completing the sentence, “I feel angry when …”
Ask for a volunteer who is willing to restate what you just said.
Toss that student the ball.
That student restates what you said, then completes the sentence for herself.
She then tosses the ball to someone else, who repeats what she said, then completes the sentence for himself, and so on.
