Last week the 1st graders played a game called Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?, which is also a chant, it goes like this
First we played it as in the video, but afterwards instead of their names, they would say a member of the family, as they are learning family.
I would tell who was the mother, father, sister, brother, grandmother, grandfather and baby and they would chant like this:
- Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
- Father took the cookie from the cookie jar?
- Who me?
- Yes , you
- Not me!!
- Then who?
This was lots of fun to the students and they've learned some basic but important language structures and revised the family vocabulary.
ps: This was a game to medium sized groups, but the rest of the class must be engaged to, so while some were in the circle the other although apart , had to chant too.
