Lesson 2: Rock, Paper, Scissors

Lesson Plan

Review all the commands and the song from the previous Genki Disco Warm Up Lesson.

The main focus of today’s lesson is teaching the rule that “Losing means try again!”
So we use the Words section of the Teacher’s Set to introduce the new language with gestures.

Play the Teacher’s Set mini lesson and finally the animated song with lots of gestures!

Here is the song in action,  Youtube has the subtitles if you’re on a laptop, and note how much emphasis is placed on teaching “Losing just means Try again!”

We’re going to use this activity in lots of games for the future e.g. Gokiburi GameLeapfrog Game

For now the we do a championship in the class

1. Everyone gets in pairs and does rock, paper, scissors.

2. The winner finds another winner and plays again.

3. Repeat from step 2 to see who is the ultimate champion.

Then of course we all try again!

Rock, Paper, Scissors!
by Richard Graham

Rock, paper, scissors.
(Rock, paper, scissors)
1,2 3, (1,2,3)
Rock, paper, scissors.
(Rock, paper, scissors)
1,2 3, (1,2,3)

Are you ready? (Yeah)
Are you ready? (Yeah)
Are you ready? (Yeah)
Are you ready? (Yeah)

Repeat Chorus

 


When you say “rock”, make your hand into a fist…


…hold it out flat for “paper” and …


…use two fingers to form “scissors”. ..

On the final “3”, everyone puts out their favourite. Scissors cut paper, paper covers rock and rock blunts scissors.
