Concept Group 17

This week we played the game Simon Says.  Basically the game has a leader give directions.  If the direction is prefaced by “Simon Says” the students follow the direction.  If it doesn’t preface the direction the students do not follow the direction and have a penalty.  We had the students in the gym so were able to use some lines that were already present for a basketball court.  The directions included moving forward and backward to the next line doing various walks such as walking like a crab, or hopping on one foot.  If students were caught following a direction without the preface of “Simon Says” they had to go back to the original line they started at.  This is a good game to increase listening skills and curb that impulse to do immediate action without thinking about the direction.  We also reviewed the concepts right, left, backward, forward, next, and sideways.
