Ten simple activities to get the children active
1 Simon Says…
Communication, Language and Literacy
Play ‘Simon Says’. Ask the children to listen to your instructions and only follow them when you say ‘Simon Says…’. Make your suggestions active, such as ‘Simon Says jump up and down’; ‘Simon Says skip to the door’, ‘Simon Says hop on one leg’, Simon says turn around’, Simon Says wave your hands in the air’ and so on. However, if you just say ‘jump’, without first saying ‘Simon says’, the children should not jump and carry on doing the current activity.
