Choreographed Games I Say Stoop

( Choreographed, Command and Response, Physical Contest )

This game is a variation of the old familiar game “Simon says ” but calls for much more activity than the latter game.

The players stand in a circle and in front of them the leader or teacher. The teacher says quickly “I say stoop ” and immediately stoops himself and rises again somewhat as in a courtesy. The players all imitate the action but when the leader says “I say stand ” at the same time stooping himself the players should remain standing. Any who make a mistake and stoop when the leader says “I say stand ” are out of the game.

This may be made a very amusing little game to fill in a few dull moments and when used in the schoolroom it serves to refresh tired minds very quickly. The leader should speak and move very rapidly and make unexpected variations in the order in which the two commands are given.
