Verbal Literacy Games for Speaking, Listening & Thinking

HOW MANY?   

Start by asking a question about a specific attribute (see some examples below) and call out as many responses as you could think of;

  • How many animals can you name that hatch from eggs as babies?

  • How many animals can you name that have patterns on their bodies?

  • How many animals can you name that eat leaves?

  • How many insects can you name that have six legs?

  • How many vehicles can you name with four wheels?

  • How many things can you name that are cone shaped?

 

I'M THINKING OF....'

A simplified version of 20 questions, and somewhat easier than I Spy when on the move in the car, we start this game with a single object in mind and the phrase, “I am thinking of something ….,” and then name a feature or attribute of the object or thing. So it might begin, “I am thinking of something that is blue.” The other players are welcome to make a guess or ask for another clue and we go back and forth between clues and guesses until they work out the correct answer.

 

Who Am I?: It in much the same way as you do game #2 but focus on a storybook or movie character instead of an object.

I WENT TO MARKET...

The aim of this game is to remember as many of the items in the shopping basket as possible.

 

The first player begins by saying, “I went to market and bought a ___,” adding an item they would buy. For example, “I went to market and bought a bag of potatoes.”

 

The next player in line continues with, “I went to market and bought (insert the name of the first player’s item) and a ___ (adding a new item purchased).” For example, “I went to market and bought a bag of potatoes and a candy bar.”

Player three adds to the chain of shopping items, “I went to market and bought a bag of potatoes, a candy bar and a newspaper.” Players continue to take turns. Any player who makes a mistake is eliminated until only one winner is left.
