With the goal of eliciting a response of "Me too.", students walk around and talk to many different students in the class. Use this activity to practice using "I like ~." or "I don't like ~."

Basic Info

Time: 5 mins
Level: Elementary, grade 5 - 6
Works with: I like, I don't like
Class size: Medium to large

 

You will need:

  • nothing

Description

  1. Students walk around and find a speaking partner. Paper, scissors, rock.
  2. The winner gets the chance to collect a "Me too." The winner says "I (don't) like apples."
  3. The loser responds honestly with either "Me too" (in which case the winner gets 1 point) or "I see." (no points).
  4. Goodbye and repeat.

Tips

  • In the case the loser doesn't agree, there are various responses, based on how you want to do it. Possible suggestions:
    • I see (The easiest, coverall response.)
    • I (don't) like something else.
    • Not me.
  • Ask students how many "Me too's" they got to finish the activity.

Warnings

  • The response is perhaps the hardest part, so making this more difficult should only be attempted with confident students.
