Count the stairs as you go up or down them
6. Play Monopoly
Rolling the dice and learning to count in Persian by moving each figure and counting out loud in Persian the number of "moves" you have to go forwards. I used this to switch my sons counting back to Persian after he started kindy and wanted to speak English.
7. Game: What's the Time Mr. Wolf? Sáat chande Áqáye gorg?
Play the age old game of whats the time Mr. Wolf but in Persian!
Line up the kids on a marker and pick one "wolf" "gorg" to be 50meters infront facing away from the children.
The children on one side will call out to the "gorg", "Sáat chande Aqáye gorg?"
and he will respond
"sáat panje" and the children will have to take 5 steps closer to the wolf, they will continue to do this with varying number of steps depening on the "time"
when the wolf is ready he will turn around and try to tag as many of the kids as he can before they reach the marker on the other side of the room.
Great way to make learning numbers fun and interactive.
Best played with at least 4 children
