Lightbulb Numbers Game

Yeah, that's a really fun game. Great for practicing numbers and counting with lower level classes, and it's a really good warm up. I've played it with the number 3, but I think 7 would be a better number because then it would involve more practice -someone inevitably screws up early so we rarely get past, say, 13.

A variation of the game for higher level classes could be to have students answer a spelling/vocabulary/grammar question as a "penalty" for screwing up. In that case I would let them rejoin the group .

Thanks for the reminder. I think I'm reviewing numbers this afternoon with my level 3 class!
