Blow Wind Blow
1.S/PSLs to get 104 to get into a circle formation.
2. One player will start off the game by calling “Blow wind blow” from the middle of the circle.
3. The class will respond with “blow what?
4. The student will then say some conditional statement: e.g. “everyone wearing black watches” or “everyone wearing school socks”
5. All the players that fit into that category must get up and switch positions with another player. (Note: One cannot switch positions with the people next to her.) This also allows a chance for the student in the middle to steal a seat.
6. Once everyone has finished switching as quickly as possible, there will be one player left stuck in the middle. Then the process repeats for 10 minutes.

Cooperation Musical Chairs
Have a group of children form a circle of chairs, with one chair for each year one. Play upbeat music and have them walk around the chairs until the music stops, and then they have to find a chair to sit in. With each round, remove one chair, but all of the children will still play. Each time the music stops, they will have to find a way to fit into the decreasing number of chairs.
Goal: fit the whole class into 6 chairs
Setting out a mission for the year ones -- the chairs represent “safety island” away from crocodiles and sharks (which will be the classroom floor) Make sure all your members are on board the safety island and not one is to be left behind with the crocodiles.
10cent coin game
Get class to form a large circle with a person in the middle to play the ‘ten-cent coin’ game, where two ten- cent coins will be passed around the circle and the person in the middle would have 2 tries (and within 2 mins) to guess the person with the coin
When the girl in the middle pick a person whom she thinks possesses the coin, she has to say something good about the chosen person (eg. abc is brave)
In the case where the person is unable to guess:
Each person in the centre will be given 2 tries/2 minutes to try to guess. If the person in the middle does not find either one of the coins being passed around, she will have to say something good about the two people who possess the coin at the end of the 2 minutes.
