Around the circle

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

This is an excellent ESL activity for children in all ages. The pupils will practice listening, speaking and imagination. You can modify it to a topic of your choice; fruits, food, clothes, colours etc.

Here's an example with fruit.
1. Sit in a circle.

2. The teacher starts by saying: "I like apples" and makes a gesture to show "apples" with the hands.

3. The person next to him/her has to repeat and then add a new fruit.
"I like apples" (makes the gesture) and bananas" and adds a new gesture for "bananas".

4. Continue around the circle. One at a time; repeating, and adding on fruits and gestures.

Test your skills! Try to remember what everyone said and go all around the circle.
