Shared counting, countdown, synergy
This exercise is designed to get us all in synch. Get into a tight circle.
Everyone in the circle looks down at the ground and closes their eyes. Someone will count off the number one. Then someone else will count off the number two. No one knows who will speak the next number. If two people speak out at the same time then the group must start again at one. It is common to try and count to twenty. Usually there is such rejoicing when twenty is counted to the warm-up is over.
One person counts really fast and doesn’t give anyone else a chance to speak.
Go through the letters of the alphabet, count downwards. Do a Word At A Time story with the same rules.
