What would you like? Shapes
The students should have learned the phrases ‘What do you want/ What would you like?’ previously using food. Refresh this language. Also review shapes, size and colors.
Demonstrate the activity using the OTE /two students.
- Put the students into groups of 6/7. One student is the leader . They will hold the Puzzle Key sheet.
- Students take turns running to their leader and asking “What do you want?/What would you like?” The leader answers using one of the shapes on the Puzzle Key sheet. “I want/I would like a [big yellow square].”
- The student runs to a group of shapes on the ground, selects the correct one and returns it to the leader. If correct, the next person repeats this to get a second shape. If not correct, they must change it for the correct shape after the leader repeats what they want.
- Once all shapes are collected, the group arranges the shapes so that they match the Puzzle Key sheet. The winning team is the first team to complete this.
- To repeat the game, simply swap leaders, Puzzle Key sheets or teams.
This is a good way to review shapes, sizes and colors.
Other vocabulary can be used instead of that mentioned in the plan, for example, animals in a zoo, numbers in a code, ingredients for a recipe, etc.
