The Silence Game

Age Range: 5 - 7
By: Michelle Jobling

When the younger children become restless, over excited or we have got our coats on ready for home time too early, I challenge my class to the silence game. I tease them by saying that I do not think they can be quiet for very long at all.

I challenge them to be silent and not move for a whole minute. I hold up an egg timer, which helps the younger children appreciate the length of a minute. The children enjoy it because they want to prove me wrong.

Once they have got the hang of the game. I will ask individual questions, if they answer me I say 'I won.'

The children are enthusiastic about the game and always ask me to try and trick them.

well i usually play the silent king game, u choose a pupil to be the king... the king has to choose one student to come to him, but he has to do it silently on his tip toes, if a noise was heard then he will lose and go back to his seat.... if he won, then he will be the king and the game goes on....

I used this game for 15-16 years old teenagers, and everyone like to play it.
Thanks ;)
