Les adjectifs positifs: A Self-Esteem Boosting Community Building Activity

I came up with the idea for this activity at the New York State Middle School Association Annual Conference in October.  At one of the sessions I attended, two of my colleagues presented on community building activities.  One of the activities they shared involved a student sitting in a chair and classmates coming up and writing positive things about them behind them on the board.  I adapted the idea a little bit for the French classroom.  I gave each student a list of positive adjectives (below), many of which they had already just learned and were practicing.  On the back of the list, I told them to each write their name.  Then they passed the sheet to the person next to them.  On the new person's sheet, they wrote one positive adjective in French, paying attention to masculine and feminine.  They continued this until everyone had a chance to write on everyone's sheet, or until we ran out of time.  At the end, each student had a nice keepsake.

Have you ever done an activity like this?
