I've used this exercise in my classroom many times as a performance arts teacher. Students really enjoy it. It inspires even the most inattentive student to focus, and participate with stamina. Highly recommended as a galvanizing activity.

Sprinkles-Sparkles? I can see my bsiness students standing in a circle and I say, "Excel" pass a sparkling paper weight made like a diamond ring (heavy)and each person has to say a word pertaining to Excel. This exercise would really improve engaement, taking on more of a happy approach to teaching. I think learning should be humorous at times. You deserve some sprinkles for this great idea.
