Ask all the students to stand up.
Tell the students that when you say, “Teacher says…….” they must be ready to do an action as indicated by the words that will follow.
Tell the students that the actions that they will have to do will be related to touching parts of their bodies or doing actions with parts of their bodies.
Tell the students that if they touch the incorrect body part they will be asked to sit down and wait for the next round.
Examples of what is to follow are, “Teacher says touch your head; Touch your legs; Bend your knees; Clap your hands; Kick your legs."
Start playing the game.
First start at a slow pace and gradually increase the pace.
Also, to make it more complicated, start the instruction given to the students with something other than teacher says, ex: “Tommy says…….” or “Sally says…….”
