1-2-3 Game

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Tony

This idea is suitable in French or English. It is called the 1-2-3 game.

Each child stands behind their chairs and choose one to start off. They start at 1 and can say up to 3 consecutive numbers e.g. 1 or 1,2 or 1,2,3. The next child follows on with up to three numbers e.g. if the last one said 1,2, then this child can say 3 or 3, 4 or 3,4,5. You continue like this around the room and the one that has to say 11 is out and sits down.

The next child starts from 1 and it all follows again until a child would have to say 11 again. The last one standing is the winner.

It is a great game and good for teaching numbers to 10 in French and Maths strategies - the kids plan to get others out and make it so people are made to get their friends out.
