“Pass It On”
The learners will respectfully accept classmates’ “likes” while greeting each other
using a “pass it on” pattern of likes.
- Students sit in a circle.
- Students need to think of something they really like to eat.
- The teacher begins by greeting the student on the right and telling them what they like to eat.
- As the greeting continues, students need to remember everyone’s favorite foods.
USE THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:
Mrs. Smith: “Good morning, Chad. I like bananas.” (Chad turns to next student.)
Chad: “Good morning, Jody. Mrs. Smith likes bananas and I like pizza.” (Jody turns to next student.)
Jody: “Good morning, Dan. Mrs. Smith likes bananas, Chad likes pizza, and I like Skittles.”
(Dan turns to next student.)
Dan: “Good morning, Jessica. Mrs. Smith likes bananas, Chad likes pizza, Jody likes Skittles, and I like
chocolate ice cream."
- The greeting is continued around the circle. The whole group helps the speaker “Pass It On” correctly.
- This greeting could be used several times by changing up the topic. The topic could be a color, food, book,
author, sport, or something the class has been studying.
HINT: In the interest of saving time, it would be possible for each student to just pass on one neighbor’s choice,
as well as their own.
