Brief Outline

'Haetataki' means 'fly-swatter' in Japanese. This is a competitive game that forces students to listen carefully while practicing both telling time and numbers in general.

 

Materials Needed

  • Flyswatters (x2)
  • 20+ cards with times written on them

 

Detailed Explanation

  1. After putting the cards on the chalkboard with magnets, split the class into two teams. (N.B: left/right side of class or boys/girls seems to work best.
  2. One member from each team comes to the board and listens to the ALT/HRT read out a time. The student who hits the correct time the fastest earns a point for their team.
  3. The next pair of students come up and so on. Once the entire class has had a turn the round is over.
  4. Repeat as time permits or it starts to get boring.

 

Variations

  • If you don't want to use fly-swatters, try piko-piko hammers (see small picture to the right).
  • If you don't want to make number cards, simply write the numbers on the chalkboard.
  • For larger classes, break the class into more teams.

 

Teaching Suggestions

  • Among the cards, have plenty with numbers the students have problems with: 15 vs 50, 13 vs 30, etc. This forces them to listen carefully.

 

Tips/Cautions

  • Be careful of the fly-swatters! Sixth grade boys like to play with them and I've found that removing the little tweezers from the fly-swatters before starting the activity is best.
