I have been running the Secret Pals activity in my elementary school for the last four years. This product is the successful result of having polled the participants and tweaked the plans of action. Not to say that it is perfect…I’m thinking that it will probably need to be adjusted time and time again based on the needs of the staff. So I continue to ask for feedback from them.
I have found that running the Secret Pals once for the year was too long….. Some participants were being forgotten by a pal, didn’t want to play anymore, wished for a new pal, or ran out of ideas. For this reason, this plan of action, runs Secret Pals 3 times in the school year and certain protocols are in place.
Participants can pick and choose which sessions they want to play, If at all.
Pals switch and participants are rejuvenated.
Included in this product:
Explanation of the activity
Protocols that have the activity working smoothly
Questionnaires for 5 different rounds
Additional Valentine game different from the typical Secret Pal activity
