As the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie comes out tomorrow, how about this little game from the Top 50 Games eBook…
Target English:  Directions, left right etc. from Genki English vol. 1’s “Left & Right”
1. Blindfold one student – or use a double eye patch for more pirate fun!

2. Place several “shark” picture cards on the floor.


3. The other students guide the blindfolded pirate to the treasure at the other side of the room. ( )

4. The pirate can only move when he/she hears a command in English!

5. But if they step on a shark it’s game over!

6. Repeat from step 1 with the next group!

P.P.S.  The winner of the comment competition for April was …. Barbara! Keep your comments coming and you might win this month!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. 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. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
