A great ESL game

This picture is from Yakitate!- one of my favorite animes.

Sometime it’s best to go back to the basics.

I played whisper down the line with my students today and it worked really well. I had 6 teams of 5 and 1 time keeper and a scorekeeper. I would make the kids line up in front and then they whisper the phrase down the line and the last person has to write it on the board. If it is completely wrong they are disqualified. If only if a word or spelling is wrong then penalize them 5 seconds. The game takes about 10 to 12 minutes to complete and I gave the winning two teams candy.
