Creative funny "punishments" game!
 
Dear colleagues!
Can you help me with one question. I īve been teaching English for more than 7 years and I īve never had a perfect group of students, I mean who always did their homework, one or two of them  from time to time didn īt do their homework or didn īt learn the words by heart,...And I īve got the idea of creative funny punishments game - take a box or a jar, put plasic eggs (from kinder as an example), and put a small sheet of paper with a note inside each egg. There is a punishment on the notes. Can you help me with the ideas of funny punishments....(Sing a song or some others)Or maybe you īii give me some other ideas how to solve this problem)))
Thank you in advance!

Students do love fun...
Aren īt  you afraid of the situation when everybody will be looking forward to being punished by a funny task? ;)

I agree with Kohai.
 
 
Better to put there things like:
1. Learn by heart the poem "XYZ" :)
2. Write an e-mail to the pen pal.
3. Learn 15 animals.
 
All for the next lesson.
etc.

I think this depends on the students ī age, if your students are teenagers they will truly hate doing this kind of things in front of the whole class. Now, from my experience let me say that not all kids love this kind of "punishments", some students might feel ashamed or threatened (I think the majority), I think the fun is for the ones who are sitting at their seats watching them, that for me is what they mostly enjoy, seeing others do funny stuff, not performing them themselves.
 
And about the punishments, I always use one that is very funny, students have to give their backs to the classroom and draw a number with their buttocks, it is like writing a number with your finger on the air, but instead of using your finger you use your buttocks, and to add a little bit more of fun at the end you can ask them to erase the number again with ther buttcoks.

AT my last school, we used to include singing the school song to the class, or whatever other English songs we had been teaching too. Other instructions (all in English) included miming different things, being the English classroom monitor for the following lesson, saying an English tongue twister out loud (3 times), and the like. We used a deck of cards rather than a plastic egg.

Thanks for all of your answers! I understand Kohai īs doubts and absolutely agree with Dayanara - that it depends on students. If we talk about children at the age of 7-12 they, as my experience shows, hardly ever don īt do their hometask or learn the words. If we talk about teenagers (and even adults) unfortunately, we have another situation... I īll use different tasks and singing, and drawing with buttocks!!!!(that īs  really funny!!!) I have already used tongue twisters at the lessons and maybe will use it again as a task! As for the form of this game - cards we use every lesson in different games, so I think they are a bit tired of them, that īs why I decided to use another unusual  form - it īll look like a lottery!!! Thanks all of you! You gave me inspiration!!!

Why not reward the ones that do well in class? I have a magic trunk where I put lots of things such as nice erasers, pencils, stickers, pokemon playing cards, and those who behaved perfectly and worked in class can open the magic trunk choose something from it. They are eager to open it every Friday and choose whatever they like. Kiss!!

What a good idea! I have a system of rewarding, especially for kids, they get stickers for their homework if it īs done corrrectly, for their projects and etc. And at the end of the school year they can exchange their stickets into objects with the logo of the school (t-shirts, caps, pens, magnets)
