Games and vocabulary practice

Playing games is a very enjoyable and effective way of learning and practising new vocabulary.
 You can help your child to learn the parts of the body by playing a popular British children’s game called Simon says.
In the game, one person gives instructions:

(Simon says) point to your leg/arm/nose/mouth/etc.”.

If the instructions include the words Simon says, then the other players must follow the instructions.

If the instruction does not start with “Simon says…”, the other players should stay still. It can be fun, especially in groups at birthday parties!

You can, of course, vary this game to focus on other vocabulary:
Simon says stand, sit, smile,
– Simon says jump, put your hands on your head — and so on
