What do you need: students play in pairs, each pair has a cup or a stuffed animal....something they can grab, and a chair
Set up: object they will grab is placed on top of the chair and students stand on opposite side of the chair.
How to play: Teacher calls out body parts and the students touch the correct body part. When the teacher yells, “Taza, or vaso, or animal” or whatever you are having them grab, the student who grabs the object first wins the round. The loser of the round sits. Students readjust to find a new partner and a new round begins. If there is an odd number, the extra student sits out until the following round. You play rounds until you get to the final 2 and play the final round to determine the winner.
This game goes fast, gets the wiggles out, is a lot of fun and is a great review! I have been playing it for a few years now and have always played it with body parts, but I saw someone else share a post the other day and they play it with classes and call the game Cape! (Latina Hilara http://www.latinahilara.com/kinetic-activities-get-em-out-of-their-seats) but they played the game using a wide variety of vocabulary words and signs....WOW! What an awesome new way to play an old favorite! I have gestures/signs for all of my verbs and many vocabulary words. This game has so many more possibilities than what I originally was able to see!....I am loving it! It is like I have a brand new game all over again! I hope you and your students enjoy it!
