Simon Says Learn Your Prepositions

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Remember how to play Simon Says? This game works really well for teaching prepositions. First, teach the prepositions (I used a pen and a pencil box). "The pen is on top on the box" "The pen is under the box" etc. Then ask them "Where is the pen?"

Then, have your students stand up next to their chairs and play Simon Says. You start: "Simon says, stand on top of your chair." "Simon says stand behind your chair." etc. Then, once they get the hang of it, have the students take turns being Simon.

This game can also be used to reinforce body parts: "Simon says stand next to your chair and touch your nose."

This game is great for those last 15 minutes of class or for the days where you've forgotten your teaching materials!
