  1. Ask the participants to use the letters in their names to create a poem. Each line begins with the letters of their name in order. They need only one word in each line.

  2. The words must tell something about themselves-for example, something they like to do, or a personal characteristic.

  3. When they have finished the poems, ask them to share their poem with the other participants.
