** Thanks for everything last week. Β We’re sending the money off today. Β I’ll have a full report for you tomorrow! **

Here’s Mido Farid’s Game for the week – great for little ones or kindergarten!
  1. Use Β tape or a hoop to make a circle on the floor
  2. Roll a die
  3. A 1 , 2 , 3 means the students must stand on their chair and 4 , 5 , 6, means they jump into the circle on the floor.
  4. The slowest (or fastest for a keen group!) student answers your questions or gets a penalty!


A 1 or 2 means stand on your chair, 3 ,4 means sitdown, 5 , 6 means gets in the circle.
Or what other things would you have them do?

    Hi Mido sensie,
    Thank you for this simple but clear game. I like it. I might be using this to all ages my (students). Keep up the good works.

    This game is brilliant. I changed it to make it more difficult for my older kids, and I’ve played it with older kids and adults as well! I have small classes of 10-13 students, so I changed the actions to these:

    Leave the classroom, get under the table, touch something (color), get down on one knee, lay on the floor, sit on a table, go in the closet (we have a big closet in the classroom), stand on the carpet (we have an area of carpet in the class), touch the whiteboard, put your hands on your head, stand on one leg etc, etc. We seem to always come up with new ideas, and its a great game to finish off the last 5 minutes of class.

    This game is really fun, I used it for my kids aged 2-3 years old, I used Yes or No instead of numbers.
    I show the Fc’s to the kids and say the word, if its yes then they have to sit on the chair, if its no then they have to get in the big circle
