groups, assign names such as "Beautiful", "Cool, "Wonderful, "Fantastic",
"Amazing". You point to a student and say "You're beautiful", then to the next
one "You're cool" etc.
Then you can say things like "all the fantastic
people stand up", or ask people "Are you cool?" or "I think you're beautiful"
Great for self esteem building!
