Game Explanation: Using different coloured markers or chalk, draw a number of shapes on the board. Call out a shape (‘Red triangle!’ or ‘Erase the red triangle!’). Either one at a time or in one-on-one competition the students must erase the correct shapes. If you like, you can add ‘big’ & ‘small’ for a triple-threat language bonanza (‘Erase the small green circle!’).
