Whisper

Objective
Review warm-up that gets students excited, and allows everyone to participate

Rules:

-Students MUST NOT say the answer out loud in Japanese or English

-Have all students STAND UP

Game:

1. The ALT /HRT either writes a particular word/picture on the board or shows the students a flashcard.

2. If the students know what the word/picture is in English, they must raise their hand. The ALT/HRT will acknowledge that their hand is up at which the student will race to front and whisper the answer to the ALT/HRT.

3. If the student is correct, they may sit down.

4. Give a small hint to students who may be having trouble figuring out the answer.

5. Repeat process with a new word/picture.

Notes

A very easy way to get the children warmed-up for English. Works well with small to mid-sized classes.

It gives students who are normally shy of raising their hand a chance to participate without fear of making mistakes in front of the whole class.

Beware of students who may knowingly say the answers out loud.
