Stand Up, Sit Down

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Kate Humphrey

Children love this game and it can be differentiated by subject/speed etc.

All children stand up and you call out a sequence - my class do times tables a lot e.g. 5, 10, 15 etc.

The teacher misses out one number on purpose, e.g. 5, 10, 15, 25, 30 etc. When the children think that a number has been missed out they have to sit down as quickly as possible. The last person standing is out.

This is great for recognising sequences and learning tables! You can also count backwards, go in particular sequences etc.

This would be a fun activity to do with Student Response Systems. You could do first to answer or last to answer. Best part is you will know which kids have the right answer. They can't just sit and hope you don't notice they don't know the answer.
