Do as I say, not as I do

EarsA 'Simon says' game with a difference. First practice Simon Says with the Ss so that they understand the game and body parts. I find it works just as well omitting the 'Simon says'. Now tell them to do as you SAY, not as you do, and repeat playing the game - only this time, when you say 'touch your knees' etc, touch your ears instead, or any other part of your body. This is a good way to see who is listening to you correctly and who is just copying your movements. Ss find this game much more fun than the original. (submitted by Lisa Coleman).

Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

HeadHave the Ss do all the actions to the song on the CD (touching the parts of their body along with the song).  After that have a speed round at a fairly quick pace.  Have a final round at high speed.  All kids love to do it fast. Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes song sheet.

Simon Says

KneesA good review for body parts ("Simon says touch your knees").  You could change Simon to your name to avoid confusion.  When T says a sentence without the word "Simon" (e.g. "Touch your knees") then Ss shouldn't follow that instruction.  If a S makes a mistake s/he has to sit out until the next round.
