Title: What time is it Mr. Wolf?

Grade: K-6

*This is a simple game that teachers can play with students that improves their counting skills and provides basic physical activity.
*The teacher chooses 1 student to be the wolf and the rest of the students are to stand against the wall, distance from the student who is the wolf.
*The students ask the wolf , “What time is it Mr. Wolf?.”. It is up to the wolf to respond with a number between 1 and 12. The wolf’s response will be “ it is____ o’clock”.
* The other students take the amount of steps forward indicated by the wolf when he/she said what time it is.

Example: wolf: “it is 8 o’clock”, therefore the students will take 8 steps forward.

This task allows beginner learners of English to practice their numeracy skill, by counting out loud when taking the steps of time.
