The Because Game

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!
