Hide, Seek and Space Travel

Hide and Go Seek- The Game

Now if you are thinking, "Now didn't this class just do this?", your are right. They loved it so much, and only half the kids got to be the seeker, that we made a list of who gets to go next and I promised them we would do it as soon as possible. As a reminder, here is how it goes:

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 seeker's favorite part is talking into the microphone!)

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. We have a list that they 'sign-up' for which helps us choose our next person.

Space Travel

Remember our train obstacle course (click here)? This time it's the same type of course teaching the same concepts (Under", "Behind", "Through", "Over" and "On") but instead it's with a space theme. The students get to travel through space as they go from planet to planet in a loop around the room. The planets have numbers on them so they look for each one in numerical order before they finally come back to rest at 'Earth'.
