This works best for the year 5 lesson on “I want” but I’ve found ways to make it work for all kinds of things. I stand at the front of the room and say “I want something blue, but I don’t want a pen.” The students then all scramble to find something that fits this description in their desk or in the classroom. Each time change the colour and the object. To make more challenging you can use more rare colours or make more restrictions as to what the objects can be ( e.g. “I don’t want scissors, a ruler or a pen.”)
