Quaker Meeting まじめの会議

Whew! I am really tired! I was jumping around trying to teach kids English all day. I taught them Chinese Jumprope. The Japanese have a similar game, but it is a little different. Then I taught them a game called "Quaker Meeting." The kids form a circle and the person that is "it" is in the center. The Quakers are VERY serious people, so no one is allowed to laugh, or even smile, at this very serious Quaker Meeting. The meeting begins and the person that is "it" tries to make the other kids laugh or smile. If they do, they become a part of the "it" group and try to make more people smile. The last kid left not smiling wins. It went over VERY well with the kids.

わあ!チョー疲れただいよ!一日中子ども達と一緒に運動で英語を勉強しました。アメリカのガムとびを紹介しました。日本のとちょっと違うが、みんなはよくできました。「まじめの会議」というゲームも紹介しました。そのゲームで真ん中で座った鬼(会長)は円で座ったみんな(まじめの会議メンバー)を笑わせるが、みんなはとってもまじめにニコニコしないで、笑わないで、座らなければなりません。笑ってしまった子は鬼グループに入ります(副会長になる)。最後の笑わなかった子は勝ちます。すごく楽しかっただいよ!

  • Hmm... I don't mean to get all offended on you, and I'm honestly not, but being a Quaker... Quakers really aren't all that serious. I think you're making a common mistake of mistaking Quakers with Amish or Mennonites...
  • (Although I'm sure if an Amish person were to read this, they'd argue that they have plenty of fun and joy in their lives...)
  • No worries. No reason for me to be upset at your correction. I didn't make up the game though. You might want to give your correction to the folks at "Games Kids Play" (http://www.gameskidsplay.net/games/circle_games/honey_do_you_love_me.htm)
