The Because Game

The Because Game

rated by 20 teachers

Use this fun warmer to review 'because' and to practice listening skills.

Begin by telling the class something you did yesterday.

eg: I went to the market.

Choose a student and have them repeat what you said, add because, and give an explanation.

eg: I went to the market because I needed cilantro.

Then have that student choose a classmate, and have her repeat the process.

eg: I needed cilantro because I was making tacos. (S chooses a classmate to create a sentence using because) I was making tacos because it was my turn to cook.


And so on until SS are warmed up!
