For practicing things like numbers, the alphabet or any other sequences (for random vocab, these could be picture cards on the blackboard, read in order)
(using alphabet as an example)
1. You say "A"
2. One student (chosen by any means legal!) repeats after you: "A"
3. Every other student repeats "A" after the standing student.
If any student calls out before their turn (ie before the standing student has spoken) then they have to stand and the first student sits.
It sounds boring as hell, and the type of game people avoid playing, but its hilarious! It works better if the students know what is coming next and speak involuntarily. Trust me on this one.. it is one of the funnier games I play. Try it for yourselves...
