Two new friends, Chloe and Yo-Yo
Another great week of school with my ESL students. This was Friday, and we were finishing our class time with some of America's in-class games.
We played "Heads Up, 7 Up"...
The students put their heads down on the desks, eyes closed, with their thumbs pointing up on the back of their heads.
The few selected up front then quietly walk among them, touches someone's thumb, then returns up front. (When the thumb is tapped, that student puts the thumb down so it isn't touched twice.) We call out "Heads Up, 7 Up",
and the 'touched thumb' kids stand, and try to pick which person it was that touched them. They get to be up front if they guess correctly.
...and "Four Corners".
In this game, "It" stands in the middle of the room and counts to 10, while the students make their way to each of the 4 corners of the room, as quietly as possible.
Then, "It" points to the corner that he last hears a sound coming from. Pastor Craig encouraged "tricks" during Four Corners,
the kids were tossing items to make noise in other corners than their own, with all having a great time! We then played with 3 corners until the last person. This is the out corner, getting into the fun.
This class was a smaller group than the first one, but as enthusiastic to learn as the others. Really, it's a joy to have students with the desire to gain knowledge!
