This game is really fun ,trust me! Kids love it very much. It works better with kids from 4th-6th grade. Here is what you do.
Let one kid stand in front of the class.
The teacher writes one word ( or even a short sentence ).
The point of the game is the rest of the class will see the word(s),but not the kid at the front.
The rest need to give the student hints (by acting, or asking questions etc.,but can't say the word ) so he or she will say the word you write.
It's funny as the first time I did it I wrote "I"m fine. Thank you and you? " since the kids tend to give me this answer like a robot every time. I ask 'how are you?'..so you can start with this one--kids will learn that they actually memorize the sentence and lot of time don't really know the meaning!
One time I wrote a random word like ' Wow!'..one kid said this to his friend "Hey! I can eat poops!'..surprisingly, his friend automatically said, " WOW!" ..It was hilarious!...Hope you guys enjoy it. Try to use a simple words like 'Yes','No' or 'Sure!'..so it won't be too difficult to play!
