So, it's the beginning of the year and time to get to know everyone! When we were told to take some straws and pass them on, I figured I better only take a few because I would probably have to tell something about myself for every straw I chose. You know, like the toilet paper game. Surprise! That wasn't the case. After we chose our straws, we were given a small slip of paper that read: Draw Straws. There was a color coded key on the slip:
Pink: What is your favorite book, or what book do you want to read? Why?
Yellow: Where is your favorite place to write? Briefly describe this place.
Blue: Do you write with a pen, pencil, or keyboard? Briefly tell why you prefer this writing instrument.
Orange: Tell us about an "ah-ha" moment in your professional life (you could edit this for your kids)
Green: What's your favorite activity in your "spare" time? Briefly tell what makes this activity so wonderful.
I was excited that this was a new way to share about ourselves! We each took turns sharing one straw around the room at a time.
