Description of Activity

Introduce the activity by saying something like:

We began this program with Sentence Starters in our first workshop. Since then, we have learned more about one another. This is our last opportunity to be together in this particular way, so we will complete some sentences once again. As the basket comes to you, draw out a sentence and complete it. If you pick one that you can't or don't want to answer, feel free to try a different one. Pauses for thinking are fine. After completing your response, pass the basket on.

Invite participants to identify themselves as they select and complete the sentences each in turn. Be sure to participate in this activity yourself.
