ESL counting warm up is one a very fun activity to play at the beginning of every class or after teaching numbers
Here’s the procedure I use in my classes. First, it’ll be a good idea to elicit the numbers from the whole class chorally. They love this part. It’s just fun for them. The rest of the procedure is:
That’s all. It looks very simple; however, students cannot grasp it without a proper demo. Hence, I play the first round as a demo game with them by directing whole the game.
The first student says 1-2; then the second student says 3-4-5; the third says 6; the forth 7-8-9; the fifth 10-11; and the sixth student should say 12, and he is out.
I play this simple, little game even with my high school students. They love it, and want to play it one more time. I think the surprise at the end of each round makes them laugh a lot. They can play tricks with numbers on someone to get him out of the game, which is great fun for them.
It’s best if you play ESL counting warm up for classes less than 20 otherwise for the whole class we are just couting. Let’s warm up!
