This could be a good way to begin/introduce your idea. I did this with 3rd graders.
1. I taught personality adjectives; smart, interesting, hard-working, etc.
2. At the end of the unit, I had the kids sit on top of their desks. They would call another student's name, throw a ball to that student and give them a compliment.
You could use this to lead into your activity.
S1: I cannot/do not write a bike very well.
S2: Don't worry. You are hard-working. You'll do better next time.

Yes, I call this English Hot Potato. They can't use teh same adjective twice or they get penalized and they have 10 seconds to say it or they get penalized. And they can't have the ball when the buzzer goes off or they get penalized.

Sounds a fun game!!
That sounds like a great game...I'll try it with my adult groups that I have
this week...and pre-teach adjectives and words for those who are Beginners.
Any other easy, simple games for Beginners?
