Sponge Activities

Operator

Just ask kids how to play this game! They love it! Students sit in a circle on the rug and one person thinks of a phrase or sentence. They tell the person next to them and it continues all the way around the circle. When it gets to the last person, they say what they heard. Usually it will be something different than what was originally said; they always have a fun time figuring out where the operator went wrong.
