Chanting the rhymes of “Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?” is not only an exciting game which includes the use of body language and a tag game but also an enjoyable way to teach a mini-dialogue full of essential expressions with a great focus on prosody.
FOCUS OF THE GAMES:
• learning objects in a room with labels
• listening to and practising polite requests
• practising numbers in English
IN THE CLASSROOM:
This chant is a great game on its own but can also be extended as a detective game if the thief imagines to hide the cookie somewhere in the classroom and the other learners, who are the police, need to find out where it is with the help of yes/no questions and prepositions.
