She’d like / He’d like breakfast game

Colin just sent in this very nice game to go with the breakfast lesson:

1. The players sit in a circle with a set of breakfast mini cards each.

2. The first player says: “What would you like for breakfast?”

3. Going round the circle, each chooses a card and says, “I’d like some…” + whatever’s on the card.
4. The first player has to remember what all the others have ordered.  They goes round the circle saying “He’d like some…”, “She’d like some…”.

If  they get it right, they takes the players card.

If they get it wrong, they give a card to the player.

They will probably find this very easy, so before they get bored, give them all a set of drinks cards too.

Now it’s , “I’d like some……. and some….”.

I’m thinking of adding fruit cards in the near future.

The winner is the one with the most cards at the end of the game.

As for timing, you can let them play until:
a/ somebody loses all their cards.
b/ they’ve been round the circle twice.
c/ your time limit is up.

What do you think, do let us know in the comments!

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...

    Perfect timing, my grade 3’s have just done breakfast and grade 4’s will use it along with the FRUITS CARDS I had made for them myself in February 🙂 I would love you to do your own FRUITS though 🙂
