BRIEF OUTLINE: Teaches the hours (eg. one o'clock, two o'clock, etc.) and review numbers.

  

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Arrange the chairs to form a circle and have the students sit in them.
  2. The students go around the circle one by one and say a time. (e.g. one student says one o'clock, the next student says two o'clock, etc).
  3. If a student falters or makes a mistake, they have to go to the centre of the circle. These students will become the “hour-hand” and point to the students who are calling out the time, but before that, they have to say (or repeat after the teacher) the numbers.
  4. As more students become “hour-hands” in the centre of the circle, they have to hold hands or stand in a line. They will have fun pointing their arms around the circle this way.
  5. Teachers should improvise if there are too many students in the circle.The students who are the “hour hand” should still be in a line (or hold hands with other “hour-hands,”) as they follow other students who are doing the time.

  

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This game works with well-behaved classes but can be a nightmare with rowdier classes.
  • For larger classes, teachers should consider breaking the class into smaller groups and have a few games going on simultaneously.
  • If the kids are too “genki” (out of control), consider getting rid of the “hour-hand” concept and have students who make mistakes replace each other.For example, if student A makes a mistake and becomes the hour-hand, then student B makes a mistake; student B will replace student A as the hour-hand and student A will take student B’s seat and rejoin the game.

 

 

 

 

概要: 時間を教えて動物の単語を復習ためにこのゲームをします

 

必要な教材

  • 上の「Materials Needed」に見てください。

手順

  1. 椅子を丸形にして生徒座らせる
  2. 生徒一人ずつに時計回りに時間の順番で言う例えば、最初の生徒は“one o'clock”を言って次のは“two o'clock”を言う
  3. 生徒が間違ったら輪の中心に行かなくてはならない。生徒は時計の短針になって他の生徒が時間を言う時にその生徒指差す。その前に数字を順番に言わなければならない(先生から繰り返してもいいです)。
  4. より多くの生徒が輪の中心で短針になる時、生徒は他の生徒と手を握または列に立つ。こうしたら輪に回りに指差す時と楽しくなる。
  5. あまりに多くの生徒中心に入るなら先生は配置を即興するべきだ。短針ある生徒がまだ列にそのままに立ちつつ(あるいは他の生徒と手を握りながら)。時間を言う生徒について輪に回る。

教える際のアドバイス

  • このゲームは行儀のよいクラスで行うと善いですが行儀の悪いクラスで行ったら悪夢かもしれません。
  • 生徒の人数によるグループの数を作ったほうがいいです。幾つかグループと共にゲームをしましょう。
  • 生徒は元気過ぎる時に、「短針」という概念を使わずに間違う生徒は間中の生徒と交換しましょう。例えば、A生徒は間違ったら「短針」になるでしょう、そして次にB生徒が間違います。そしたら、B生徒はA生徒と交換し、B短針になるとABの席に座りゲームを続けます。
