Community Level 2 – Familiar

Materials: None

How to play: In a circle, one player (It) stands in the middle asks a player sitting in the circle “Who’s your neighbor?” and points either to the left or right of the person being asked. Then the race begins! It says “bibbity bop bop bop” as fast as she can. The person asked must name the person pointed to as fast as he can. If It is faster (i.e., is able to say bibbity bop bop bop before the other player says his neighbor’s name), they switch places. If not, It tries with another player in the circle.

Plan for Success: If It has been in the center too long, the teacher can choose a volunteer to exchange place with It.

Variations: Students can invent alternative, nonsense phrases to “bibbity bop bop bop”
