Circuits (Pattern Game)
Have everyone stand in a circle. One person points to another and says any word. That person points to another and says another word that would belong on the same list. Continue until everyone is pointing at someone else and the list has gone back to the original person. Go through this sequence again a few times. Now add another ‘circuit’ pointing at different people with different words in another sequence. Play the two circuits together, making sure the person passed to has heard and received their cue. When both are successful, start a third circuit where everyone starts with their hand up, one person moves across to another and says ‘you’ then lowers their hand, that person moves to another, etc. until everyone has changed places once. Repeat this last pattern. Now introduce all the circuits at the same time.
