New Game: Circle of Doom!

Here’s Mido’s latest game for you.  It’s a way of picking a volunteer, in a similar way to London Bridge, but of course “Circle of Doooooom” (said in a deep cinematic way!) sounds a whole lot more cooler!

1. Put the kids in a big circle.

2. Under one of the kids put a “Circle of Doom” i.e. a hula hoop or draw a circle with chalk.

3. Whilst singing today’s song ( e.g. Do you have any brothers or sisters?, school subjects etc. ) the kids walk round stepping in and out of the circle of doom.

4. At some point you stop the music.

5. Whoever is in the circle of doom is the volunteer to ask/answer a question, come up with a whole series of questions about today’s English or whatever task you want them to do!

What do you think?

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    I think that this game is wonderful. I have ever played the game. I’ve just received the prize that it’s similar as MIdo’s game.

    I like it, it’s a good alternative to hot potato and rolling the dice, the kids were getting awfully tired of that.

    It’s a really good idea. Simple but at the same time fun. I’ve done the standard version with chairs but this is much easier and less time consuming to prepare.

    Thanks 🙂

    I wonder if there will be a Genki English certificate available to download for students in the near future?

    Yeah, this is just a variation on Musical Chairs…which is okay! Variation is always good.
