Another idea is for the teacher to cut out the strips and then the boxes of each sentence and then gives each student a jumbled sentence. The student must unjumble and glue in the correct order in their exercise book.


Dividi la classe in due squadre. Ritaglia le frasi in strisce (una per ogni squadra), piega le strisce a metà e mettile in un contenitore per squadra. Prepara un set di oggetti menzionati nelle frasi per ogni squadra (a big ball, a blue cone, ecc) e posizionali di fianco al contenitore con le frasi piegate sulla linea di partenza. Al via un bambino per squadra a turno dovrà prendere una frase dal contenitore, leggerla a voce alta ed eseguire la consegna. Gli alunni che non capiscono la richiesta possono chiedere aiuto ai compagni di squadra. Vince la prima squadra a fare tutte le azioni richieste.


The next game aims to consolidate words related to the school garden and the prepositions of place. Distribute one sheet per team (the sheets have the same sentences but are arranged in different order) and place 10 balls in the school garden following the instructions of the sentences but intentionally mistaking the position of some (for example, instead of putting a ball ON the bench you could decide to place it UNDER the bench). On go, a student from each team must read the first sentence out loud and all the students in the team must run to touch the ball that corresponds to the sentence, observe its location, return to the starting point and decide together with the other members of the team if the sentence is TRUE or FALSE. It is important that the pupils take turns reading the sentences aloud so that everyone can participate in the game and that one member of each team is elected to act as secretary to write. The teacher will have the task of making sure at each turn that the marked answer is correct. The first team to complete the race and answer all questions correctly wins. If older students are participating the teacher can make the level more advanced by asking them to correct the FALSE sentences on the back of the sheet.


Introduce the vocabulary words by repeating them several times while indicating the correct direction with your hands. After a few minutes, ask the children to imitate you and repeat the words. Once the vocabulary is acquired, divide the children into pairs and have each pair choose a small object from their pencil-case (an eraser, a pen cap, etc.). In turns, the children have to hide the object in one hand and then place their hands one on top of each other.  Each partner has to try to guess where the object is by pointing to the hand where he believes it is hidden while saying UP or DOWN. Repeat the game several times.

Ripetere facendo posizionare le mani parallele. In questo caso il compagno deve indovinare dicendo LEFT oppure RIGHT o meglio ancora MY LEFT/RIGHT oppure YOUR LEFT/RIGHT. Fai ripetere il gioco diverse volte.
