About this teaching resource

Oral Language Games get the whole class talking, thinking, moving and collaborating.

Introduce your students to ring and line games that have been played by generations of children, now with 21st century updates.

Each game is based on a rhyme that children chant as the game is played. Some games can be played in a circle space in the classroom, whilst other games are made for the great outdoor spaces of the school oval.

Oral Language Games include: How to Play instructions, a copy of the Rhyme (A4, enlarge to A3), game tools

These games help to build: oral language, collaboration, listening skills, vocabulary, wondering, innovations, explorations and community.

Jack Jinkle is a counting game, with plenty of body part naming, chanting and language fun for the whole class.
