Communication Round

This exercise is especially good for younger students practicing social skills or for English Learners of all ages.  Before I begin the lesson, it is important that the lesson should be demonstrated by using complete sentences for the questions and response.

- Set up students in a large circle (teachers can have a song cue that could put them in a specific order)

-Have students call out either X's or O's. Match each X, with the O on the inside.

-You will have one outer circle and one inner circle, X on outside O on inside.
