No, not seriously (although I have just won a diary in an on-line competition…)
This game has nothing to do with music, as far as I can see, but fills in a spare few minutes at the end of a lesson. You could, of course, play “Don’t Clap This One Back“, but all my classes are too good at that game now.
It’s a circle game, a bit like Elevenses. Everyone stands up, in a circle.
The first person says “I one a worm”, or they can say “I one a worm, I two a worm”.
The second person can add one or two more “worms”, and then the third person follows on.
If you end up having to say “I ate (eight) a worm” you are out and the count starts again. For example:
First Person: “I one a worm, I two a worm”
Second Person; “I three a worm”
Fourth Person; “I four a worm, I five a worm”
Fifth Person; (who is standing next to someone they don’t like) “I six a worm, I seven a worm”
Sixth Person; “I ate a worm” is out and sits down.
Seventh Person; “I one a worm” and round you go, until there is a Last Person Standing.
I can’t find a picture of worms that I really like, so here’s some spaghetti instead.
