How about how people used to communicate, we had a discussion and it was amazing from the old phones where you could here others talking when you would press thier code, or if someone hung a white sheet out they had news for the nieghbours. Residents would laugh because they would have a few stories.

i get the residents in a circle and do the exercises in front of them sitting on a chair i start from feet heel and toe, then kicking, then get the arms out in front of me and bend wrists up and down we usually say where are we going to dig to today, yell out some where interesting like today we are going to luner park to the easter show, have 2 sets of bending wrists then we have finger touching with our thumb then we blow kisses then stetch our arms out left and right, then we wave to each other and say good morning , all you do is have exercises with a twist i have most of the residents join in because they have a laugh and they are being active.
