Classroom/ Backyard activities 2


Nemo
Another activity that you can use in a classroom or backyard is the Nemo game. It is suitable for kindergarten or younger kids.
One of the kids is in the middle and the other surround him holding hands, making a circle. The other kids represent fish that swim arround Nemo.
They all holding hands walk round and shout out Nemo, Nemo what can you see? Nemo says random words of the object that he/she can see. In case a teacher is Nemo you can review the vocabulary that you have studied.
When Nemo says i can see sharks , the two or more previously selected kids that represent sharks can run and catch a fish and then “eat” it.
Aim of the game: Practice vocabulary and sentences: I can see a….what can you see?
 Typhoon
This game can be played in any classroom for any kind of vocabulary. Make a grid of 6, 9, 12, or more spaces. You can also divide the students in groups or if small number they can play individually.

Variation 3: Tell you a synonym or antonym….
