To play this game you don’t need any preparation, which, to be honest, sometimes it’s just what we -busy teachers- ask for. But if you are like me, you’ll find yourself doing just the same as your students, ie, having lots of fun.
For this game you need to make an origami fortune teller, also called “cootie catcher”( see picture). Instruction on how to make one and how to play here.
Ask students to write 8 fortunes inside the flaps. Encourage them to use their imagination and make sure they use the future simple: will.
Once this task is completed, ask students to stand up and mingle. Time to be a fortune teller!
Ask a student to choose one of the four colors. Spell that color out, while moving the fortune teller in and out. Then ask this student to choose one of the numbers that is showing. Move the fortune teller in and out the right number of times.
When you finish, have the person choose one of the four visible numbers. Open up the flap they choose, and read their fortune.
Have fun! Who said English was boring???? ;-))
