I thought we’d start this term with some really easy review games to get a quick bit of fun into those returning students after the holidays.
It’s basically a great variation on the “Unlucky 13” numbers game.
In the original form …
For big classes:
Or small classes:
1. Put everyone in groups of between 2 and 10 kids (or teachers as we have here! 🙂 )
2. The first person says either “1”, “2” or “3”
3. The next person continues on and can say an additional one, two or three numbers.
E.g. if the first person said “1, 2”, the second person can say either “3” or “3,4” or “3,4,5”
4. Continue around the group until one person is forced to say “13”. They are now out.
5. Start again from 2.
Today’s big twist…..
So today’s big twist is to simply do it with the months of the year. e.g. the first person can say January or January, February, or January, February, March etc. and the person who says “December” is out! (Maybe they become Santa’s helpers : )
For the days of the week there are only 7 options so it’s best to let the kids say either one or two days as other wise it becomes too easy. 🙂
Do give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments!
P.S. This was another fantastic game I learnt from the ACET Teachers in Fukuoka – thank you!
