Community Level 3 – Comfortable


Materials: None

How To Play: Player walks into the center of the circle in a way
connected with a hobby (e.g., if it’s dancing, the player dances; if
it’s swimming, she “swims” as she walks). When someone guesses the
hobby, the whole group does the dance or swimming “walk” a few steps
around the circle. Then the next player walks into the center of the
circle in a manner connected to her hobby (different from the first
player’s), and the game continues.

Materials: Chart paper and markers

How To Play: This is a quick game inspired by the old TV show with the same name. Players pick a card with a word on it. Using the chart and markers, they illustrate the word by drawing while the rest of the group guesses the word. Whoever guesses the word first is the next to draw. 

Variations: Connect the words to your curriculum.

Community Level 3 – Comfortable


Materials: none

How to Play: One person begins the game by going into the middle
of the circle and miming an action. The next person in the circle comes
into the middle and asks the first person, “(Name), what are you
doing?” The first person says an action, but not the one she is doing.
The person who asked the question then has to do that action. This
continues around the circle. Reminder for students: action should be
appropriate and not embarrassing.

How To Play: Standing empty-handed in a circle, players acknowledge one another in categories based on CARES (Cooperation; Assertion; Responsibility; Empathy; Self-control) social skills:

I noticed Roberto was responsible and got his homework in on time.
I want to acknowledge Ingrid for using cooperation and inviting me into her group.
