View Full Version : Good games/activities for large groups?

February 27th, 2012, 13:33
Hi, everyone. I've got my last day of classes at one of my elementary schools coming up this week. Since it's the last day, they've decided to combine the classes of 5th and 6th graders. Meaning that I'll have one class of 40 kids for 5th grade, and one class of 46 kids for 6th grade. Since it'd probably be pretty hard to do anything in a classroom, I've asked if we can use the gym.

Right now, I'm trying to figure out some games or activities that would be suitable for groups of this size. I'd like to do something where they're up and moving most of the time. We've recently finished the Eigo Note books, so maybe there's some kind of game that I can adapt to review vocabulary from the books. Or, since it's the last class, something "just for fun" is probably okay too.

Please let me know if you have ideas. Thanks!

What Time is it, Mr Wolf? was pretty popular at the school I taught at for a while. You can use it to review numbers and time. If they know actions, Mother May I? might be ok.
