buffalo2.jpg You Big Bully !

How many English phrases can you think of that include the word “you” ? Divide the class into two teams and distribute cards of two colours. Then the “Bull” (leader) designs a dingbat drawing of the phrase. Each player who guesses the phrases correctly wins a point for his team and the winning team scores most points. Example – “I have my eye on you” = my i

                                                             u

 

Bullseye Dingbat

 

An alternative to the above game could include “eye” or anything to do with “looking” and “seeing”. Example – “Love is blind”, “An eye for an eye”, “A good idea”, “Look behind you !”.
