How to play OCTOPUS Pick one person to be "It." This child, the Octopus, stands in the middle of
the playing field. The person supervising the game should show all the children the boundary lines. No one is allowed to go outside the boundaries during the game; else he or she is out. • Line the other students up at one end of the playing field. They are the "Fish." Yell, "Go!" The Fish should try to run as fast as they can to the other end of the field. The Octopus should attempt to touch them. If they are tagged, they are out, but they must sit in the spots where they were tagged. They then act as additional "arms" of the Octopus and assist him or her. They must remain seated, but they can tag any student that runs by that can be reached with their arms. Continue playing the game until only one Fish remains. This person gets to be the Octopus the next time. The Octopus can run anywhere he or she wants to try to tag students; the only restriction is that the Octopus must initially start the game in the middle of the course. What time is it Mr. Wolf 2 3
• Assemble the children against the wall in a line . • Choose "Mr. Wolf" (star of the day). Ask Mr. Wolf to stand at one end of the playing area.
Mr Wolf turns his or her back so he/she cannot see the kids.The row of children chant: "What's the time Mr. Wolf?" Mr. Wolf will turn around and answer a time (for example, 4 o'clock). The children advance the number of steps called out and then repeat the chant, waiting for a response and so on. Eventually they will be standing very close to Mr. Wolf. Mr. Wolf can, at any 4 moment once the line of children is close, respond "Lunch Time" in a loud growl, instead of giving a real time. This is the cue for lots of screaming (remind them not to scream) and running because now Mr. Wolf has to chase the rest of the children and tag one of them. Change Mr . Wolf. The child who was the wolf can choose another person (opposite gender) to be the next wolf.
HOW TO PLAY SPUD: “IT” HOLDS THE BALL AND ALL THE OTHER PLAYERS CIRCLE AROUND HIM. THE OTHER PLAYERS IN THE CIRCLE EACH HAVE A NUMBER.
“It” then throws the ball straight up in the air while calling out a number. The player with that number must catch the ball either while it is coming down or on the rebound. While the player is catching the ball all other players scatter and get as far away as they can from the person catching the ball. When the ball is caught that player yells “SPUD!”. The players who are running away must then stop in their tracks. The player with the ball can take four steps then try to throw the ball and hit one of the other players If the player hits someone then the player he hits gets a letter in the word SPUD. If he misses then he himself gets a letter. When a player gets all four letters of the word SPUD they must sit out the rest of the game.
