You probably know this but this is something I've seen in corporate seminars here in Thailand--the 7's game

All get together in a circle--strat counting from 1,2,3 etc, around the circle-any time the number reaches a mutiple of 7 or has a 7 init i.e 7, 17 the person has to clap his handes without saying the number --if they get it wrong and blurt it out-they are out of the circle and it starts again. Eventually it ends with a winner by elimination

Good for some laughs and as ice breaker

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!

Oh yeah,

and don't forget that the instructions part before you play is a great way to review imperatives ...

I'm also reviewing this week. This game will be great for a quick, end of class review. Thanks asiaexpat!

We play a version of this in Korea called "Sam-Yuk-Gu" (3-6-9). Same thing going around in a circle, except they have to clap on any number containing a 3, 6, or a 9 (not multiples of 3 though - you wouldn't clap on 12 for example). You can then "upgrade" the game by adding another "catch" - they have to say "OK!" or whatever on multiples of 5. I also use this game to review ordinal numbers (first, second, third...).

Great idea. I have never heard of this in Brazil.

Thanks.
