We had a delightfully fun day at English camp today. Our good friends Sam and Rik let us borrow their game of Catchphrase.
If you don’t know Catchphrase then you’ve never spent an evening at the Nash house. This game of describing words to your teammates against the ticking timebomb timer has resulted in fits of laughter, umpteen sibling fights and even prompted my mom to dig out her magnifying glass. (If you dare, you can ask her for those details).
After playing it recently with our friends, I realized it was the perfect activity for our game-hungry kids at school, especially during the more laid back English camp days we are having right now.
Because Sam and Rik’s game is ancient (meaning it is not electronic) I easily covered the words inside with our own English vocabulary words our students have been studying.
I don’t have to tell you it was a hit. You can watch for yourself. But I’m pretty sure a few choice words in Korean were flung around the table, as well as a few not-so-light punches. And honestly, I’ve never heard so much English come out of their mouths.
