how to play
This flashcard game idea can be adapted to any language concept (in this case, to our Giving Commands topic). The instructions below are just a starting point to inspire you.
Students put their flashcards face up on their desks.
Tell the students that they will hold up their cards or not, depending on whether they hear you say Simon says.
To begin the game, say, for example, Simon says B like banana. The students should hold up their B cards.
If you say, for example, B like banana, they should do nothing.
