Shoulders, knees, CUP! Students try to be the first one to grab the cup after listening to a series of commands. Have them break in to pairs facing a cup, then shout Head, Toes, Elbows, Toes, Ears, Hair (really anything will work) and then CUP! The first person to grab the cup moves on, finds a new partner, and the losers sit down. Last person standing wins!

Games that Practice Self-Regulation of Body & Actions
These 17 games practice impulse control, paying attention, listening and following directions. Students focus on having to pay close attention to expectations, and override urges in order to make the most appropriate choice about their actions. Games can be conducted with small or large groups, require NO materials or preparation, and most can be played either indoors our outside.
