Here’s Mido Faird’s game for this week. It’s great for some simple math or even for months of the year – if you ever got November or December you’d know they were cheating! 🙂
(If you’re on email and can’t see the video, click here!)
1- Divide the class into teams, call up the the first student from each team and have them stand back to back.
2 – Each students shows a number of fingers on one hand
3- When you say “go” the two students must turn to face each other.
4- The first student to correctly say the sum of the fingers shown by both hands is the winner.
For the months of the year version they have to say what the month is e.g. July if the total is 7 fingers!
Or you could get them to use both hands for numbers up to 20 or even ordinal numbers up to 20th!
Any other themes you could use with this game?
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...
