A great revision game for clothes and accessories
You’ll need your costume bag for this game. If you don’t yet have a costume and prop box ask parents to bring in the following items:
- hats, gloves, and scarves
- coats and old shoes
- shirts, t-shirts
- Plastic glasses, moustaches, wigs etc
How to play
The children stand in a circle, the music starts – and the bag needs to be passed round the circle. When the music stops, the child holding the bag has to take something out, say what it is and put it on.
The game continues until all the items have been used. The winner is the person wearing the most clothes. You can either put some pop music on and let the children dance in their new outfits
Encourage everyone to find a new way of walking, talking and gesturing using their costumes and props and introduce yourselves to each other in English using your character s voice.
Practicing simple ESl introductions,
– Hello, what’s your name?
– My name is….
– How are you?
– I’m wonderful!!!
– How old are you?
– I’m 100!!
can be made so much more fun by dressing up and putting on a silly voice and you will find that even the shyest of children will feel less inhibited to speak as they are able to hide behind another character
Happy teaching and have a great weekend
