BRIEF OUTLINE: While practicing various responses to 'How are you?', students travel from one side of the room to the other, without being eaten by the wolf.

  

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After teaching 'How are you?' question and responses, assign each response with a distinguishable action, for example, thumbs-up for "I am good," or shivering for "I am cold."
  2. Tell the kids this game is like the Japanese 'daruma-san ga koronda' game.
  3. All the students line up on the wall (at the back of the classroom). On the HRT's cue, everyone asks the 'wolf', “How are you?” as they take two steps forward. It is important to stress these steps are regular steps, not kimono-shuffles or spaceman-leaps.
  4. For the first round, the ALT is the wolf. The wolf starts by facing the opposite wall (at the front of the classroom).
  5. After everyone asks, “How are you?” and takes his/her two steps, the wolf replies with one of the 'How are you?' responses, for example, "I am hot!" 
  6. After a brief moment, the wolf turns around and looks at everyone. All of the students must now be doing the correct gesture, for example, wiping their brow and fanning themselves for the hot gesture.
  7. Anyone not doing the correct gesture becomes a wolf cub and joins the wolf.
  8. Once the wolf is satisfied, he faces the wall again. The students ask the same question and advance again.
  9. If a student reaches the wolf's wall, they are safe. However, anytime the wolf responds with "I’m hungry," hunting season is open. All the students must run back to their own wall before they are eaten by the wolf. The first student touched by the wolf becomes the wolf for the next round.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Everyone caught becomes a wolf for the next round. The wolf number increases and players decrease. Version two is better for little kids who may have trouble being the wolf and replying to, “How are you?” on their own. Play until there are only a few players remaining.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This game is best played in the gym.
  • If playing in a classroom you can replace walking/running with frog-leaps, and the wall with a line, to avoid injury.

 

 

 

 

 

概要: "How are you?" に対するいろいろな種類の答え方を練習しながら、狼に食べられないようにして、生徒は教室の端から端まで行きます。

 

必要な教材

  • 上の「Materials Needed」に見てください。

手順

  1. "How are you?" の質問といろいろな回答を教えた後で、答えるときの分かりやすい行動を教えます。例えば、親指を立てるのは"I am good"(元気よ!とか、いいよ!)ということとか、体を震わすのは "I am cold"(寒い!)ということなどです。
    2. このゲームは日本の「だるまさんがころんだ」というゲームに似ているといえば分かるでしょう。
    3. 生徒は教室の後ろの壁に沿って横一列に並びます。HRTは、全員が狼に"How are you?"と聞く合図を出します。聞きながら生徒は2歩前に進みます。生徒は普通に歩みを進めることが大切です。小さすぎても大きすぎてもだめです。ごく普通に歩きます。
    4. 最初のラウンドでALTは狼になります。狼は反対側の壁に向いて(教室の前方に向かって)始めます。
    5. 生徒全員が"How are you?"と聞きながら2歩に進んだら、狼は、たとえば、"I am hot!"(暑い!)と答えます。
    6. 一瞬おいて、狼は後ろを振り返ります。そして全員を見ます。その時、生徒は答えに合った正しい動き方をしなくてはいけません。例えば、"I am hot"と聞いたら、皆は額の汗をぬぐったり、うちわで扇ぐような動作をします。
    7. 誰か間違った動作をしたら、狼の子どもになって狼に加わります。
    8. 狼が満足したら、また壁(黒板)のほうに向き直ります。生徒はまた同じ質問を繰り返して、進みます。
    9. 生徒が狼側の壁に着いたら安全ということになります。しかし、狼が"I’m hungry" と言う時はいつでも狩猟期間となります。生徒全員は狼に食べられる前に走って自分の壁に戻らなくてはなりません。狼に最初に触られた生徒が次のラウンドで狼になります。

バリエーション

  • 狼に捕まえられた生徒全員が次のラウンドで狼になります。すると、狼は増えていき、人間が減っていくことになります。この変形2の場合は、低学年で、 "How are you"に対して生徒自身で応えるのが難しい場合にいいでしょう。狼でない生徒が2,3人になるまでゲームを続けます。

注意すること

  • This game is best played in the gym.
