This idea is suitable in French or English. It is called the 1-2-3 game.
Each child stands behind their chair and chooses one to start off. They start at one 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.
