Find a space inside or outside where there is room to move and preferably speak loudly, even shout!
|‘The captain is always right’
|This is an example of a great game where a Captain shouts out ship related orders: Attention!” (everyone stands straight) “Scrub the deck!” (everyone on their knees scrubs the deck) “Land ahoy…!” (point into the distance) “Ballroom dance” (dance in couples), etc.|
|Simon says||Develops targeted listening. This is my favourite game. We challenge each other: I have some students who are completely unbeatable and I just love it!!
I also now have older students who play the game with younger students.
|Write your own play||The script can be kept very simple, based on the students’ level.
It helps concentrate their efforts, does wonders for their confidence and the little bit of effort goes a very long way.
Positive results guaranteed!See an example in Lessons/Play.
