Teaching/playing with English

Who took the cookie form the cookie jar?

Teaching kindergarten children should be always associated with a pleasure and building child’s curiosity. Kids love to play and connecting teaching with playing is mostly the key for successful acquisition of the language.  

This time I would like to introduce you to one of my favourite game, that I often play with my 4-year-olds to practice nouns. “Who took a cookie from the cookie jar?” is their beloved way of spending free time while playing it in the group. The rules are so easy that you can also play it at home even if there’s only 3 or 4 people. 

To start with, you will need a card or picture with a cookie. However it will be even more absorbing when you use a real cookie as a reward :) The second thing is a collection of pictures or real objects that you want to practice with your child and cards to deal http://supersimplelearning.com/resource-center/who-took-the-cookie-game-large-cards/. It can be something different each time. Animals, toys, members of a family, fairy characters, even furniture or food. The big collection of so called flashcards can be found here http://www.kids-pages.com/flashcards.htm. The more odd it seems to be, the more fun you have. The last point is to sit in peace with your child and others, choose a person to start and chant together. 

Who took a cookie from the cookie jar?

... (e.g. broccoli) took a cookie from the cookie jar!

Who me? (the chosen person- broccoli asks and points to him/herself)

Yes, you! (others nods and points at him/her)

(the chosen person-broccoli checks the card and shakes his/her head

Not me...

Then who?

Cucumber!

The chant starts again and again until the cookie is found and then finishes with the further
