Before playing Jump To It, for example, the teacher draws pictures of objects in the room or cuts out pictures from magazines. She should draw or tape the pictures on index cards. She then has one child draw a card. The child looks around the room for that object. He estimates how many jumps it would take him to reach that object. He jumps to the object, and if he reaches it within his predicted number of jumps, he keeps his card. Otherwise, he must discard it. The child with the most cards at the end wins the game.

A game called Whose Ear Is This requires three or more players. One player wears a blindfold. He is instructed to touch one feature of another player, such as a nose, an ear or a finger. He then guesses which person he touched.

The teacher can tell the children how to say simple words and phrases in other languages, such as "hello," "goodbye" and "thank you." She can enhance their learning by telling them facts about a country where the language is spoken.
