Happy Thursday, Friends!
I'm so glad that you stop in each week for a new idea for your classroom. Many of the ideas utilize recycled items. If you have been following this blog for awhile you know recycling items is high on my priority list. While making use of items usually tossed in the trash, I work hard at not having a "junked up" look or feel in my classroom.
This week I don't have an item to make or download. Maybe many of you have played this game in your classroom. This game is totally free and a fantastic way to fill those few minutes at the end of the day or your class just needs a change of activities. Today was one of those days when the kiddos just needed to do something different.
I call the game Beep Beep. One student stands at the front of the room with their eyes covered. Teacher selects one student to hide behind a cabinet, a door, or whatever is available in your classroom. The remaining students all switch places, they love this part! The person at the front of the room turns around and tries, as quickly as possible, to identify the student hiding. Once the student has had an incorrect guess or two, the hiding student says, "Beep, beep," in a funny voice. Usually the guessing student will figure it out pretty quickly. If not, have the hiding student say, "Hello, ___" in their funny voice.
I've tried to guess the student behind the cabinet, it is not as easy as it seems. The kids get a kick out of seeing me struggle to figure out who is hiding.
Enjoy this great classroom activity with your kiddos.
