Hide and Go Seek and Parachute Emotions

Click to View Larger
Hide and Go Seek- The Game

We practice saying the 'Hide and Seek' chant as a class:

Lets All Play Hide and Seek
Cover Your Eyes, Please Don’t Peek!
Then We’ll Count From 1 to 10
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Ready or Not, Here I Come! 

Then we choose a seeker and all the other student's hide while they say the chant including counting to 10 and saying, "Ready or not, here I come!".

The student then looks for the other students and are encouraged to use student's names as they find them. As they are found the other students come back to the rug and we talk about where they hid emphasizing prepositions including "under", "around", "in" and "behind". We also used distant words like, "closer," "nearer" and "over there". Once everyone is back, we review it once again and then start with a different seeker. 

Parachute Emotions
We start out with "If Your Happy and You Know It". We have balloons and a permanent marker. The students tell the name of the emotion they want and shows what the face looks like. We draw on the face. When the balloons are finished, we pull out the parachute and play with it to music. As the balloons fly off, we label them. "Oh no, there goes the surprised balloon. ______ grab the surprised balloon!".
