After the rather sad post last Friday, Β here is Mido Farid’s perfect follow on game of the week.
I have a feeling it’s going to be hugely popular with the ladies out there and I’m sure would also be a huge hit in High School.
By the way Sara is Mido’s daughter….
1. Divide the board in two and draw a baby on each side.
2. Divide the class into two teams. Each team is responsible for one baby.
3. Ask the first students from each team a question.
4. If the answer is correct draw a kiss on their team’s baby.
5. At the end of the game, theΒ team with the most kisses wins!
If you really wanted you could erase a kiss if a team got a question wrong. Β But I’m sure you’d never be that mean!
What do you think? I’m sure Mido (and Sara!) would love to hear your comments!
P.S. Today is the last day for February’s comment competition, get your comment in today and you might win a Genki English CD of your choice!
I am an English Teacher in Argentina. A primary 3rd form teacher. As school is starting tomorrow, I can tell you that last year I played this game with my 8 year-old kids. They enjoyed it very much, indeed. They were so excited that I hope to apply to this same game and others that I consider them wonderful!! Congratulations for all the material (songs, new ideas and games that I always receive from you all…Best Regards. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Your web is amazing..!!!!!!!
I really like these games and I think I will put them into practice as soon as my classes start at High School!!!…Thanks so much for all your support in English teaching!!…
God bless you!!…
I am Mexican; actually I teach in a collage in my country; the groups are conform in average per 40 students; the principal problem that I have had when I teaching English is our Mexican Culture as a Mexican we have some many paradigm about education and social status we have people poor and rich, so, most of the economic sectors depends of Americans so every time before I teach I need to talk about the importance to learn English as a foreign language and I give some new related to the globalization and the situation that we live around the world, the application and the impact in our lives for me this situation is very difficult but it is getting better with the communication and the motivation in the classroom. It is very importance translate every topic to their personal lives and the environment that we lives.
ItΒ΄s really helpfully for me all your ideas, games, material and sugestion.
Keep in touch!!
Have an excellent week…
hi I’m Maria jose from Uruguay. This year I’ll have primary students as well as secondary students. I’m so glad because I like primary students. As all this came as I surprise I suppose I’ll use your games which are fascinating since before as I was a subsitute teacher and I was obliged to use the material the other teacher use I can’t have a go with your games, songs and ideas. When I try them I let you know .
I like it a lot. A variation could be made by getting the baby dressed . the teacher makes two sets of clothing items for the babies and everytime an answer from the ss. is correct they get to dress the baby. the group that finishes first is the winner.
This sounds like a very easy game–no setup needed beforehand. I’m going to try it. Thanks for the idea.
This going to be my first teaching assignment. I will be going to China. So I looked on YOUTUBE to see how all you wonderful teachers make it look and sound so easy. Well not to say was a bit shocked at what I found and at what feedback I heard . So not sure of what or how to teach my new kids. Because everyone had there own ways and it reminded me of my school back in the 60’s and 70’s. To tell you the truth was no way going to teach like this. Until I came upon Richard’s Genki teaching style. Wow blown away and am hooked on it, it is what I have been saying for years. No matter what you teach to someone young or old “if it’s fun” you want to do it. I am off to China on the 29th and start my first time class on the 1st of April 2013. I know April fools day. Wish me luck because I will need it. Remember everyone be “GENKI”.
