Community Level 2 – Familiar


Materials: None

How To Play: The teacher begins by saying, “I am thinking of a
word that rhymes with cat.” Players who think they know a word go to
the center of the circle and pantomime their guesses. For example, a
player may go to the center of the circle and flap his arms like a bat.
The others in the circle try to guess what the player in the center is
miming. The player who correctly guesses the mimed word then has a
chance to guess the teacher’s word.

Variations: Alphabet charades can be played in the same manner. For example:
“I am thinking of an animal that begins with the letter B.”
“I’m thinking of an animal that begins with C and ends with T.”
