(What Didn’t Come) Out of the Mouths of Juniors

My Juniors were playing a vocabulary game. Round one, they can say anything except the word they’ve drawn out of a hat, in an attempt to get their team to guess the word. So… “Something you eat soup with,” and your team correctly guesses, “Spoon.”

Round two, we put all the words back in the hat, and start over, but this time they can only say one word in order to get their team to guess. They might say “Soup!” to get you to guess spoon.

Round three, they cannot use any words at all–it’s like charades, but you’ve heard the words twice already. 

It’s round three and a young man is pointing frantically at me as the timer runs down. It’s the first time we’ve played the game, so we’re using pretty basic words, just so they get the general idea of how to play. 

The time is ticking…

Nobody can figure out what word he’s getting at, even though they’ve had all these words several times in the last ten minutes. 

Finally the timer goes off, and he reveals his word. 

It’s “beautiful”.
