More or Less

18 Feb

This game practices numbers.  It works well because students can narrow down the number quickly and get lots of speaking and number recognition practice.
Make a T-chart on the whiteboard.  Write Más (more) on the left side and Menos (less) on the right side.
I usually start and choose a number for the class to guess.  I put a range on the board (0-100, etc).  I write the number secretly on a piece of paper.  Students raise their hands to guess my number.  I write the number guessed in the appropriate column in the T-chart so the students know if my number is higher or lower than the one they guessed.
The student who guesses correctly chooses the next number.  They must stand at the board and select guessers and write their numbers int eh chart.  
I have the student write it on a piece of paper so I can help and make sure they do not change their number.
After playing as a class a few times, students can play in small groups so that more students are actively playing.
