My Favourite Game
My favourite game is hide-and-seek. Many children can play it. One child must shut his eyes and count to ten or fifty. Children go to hide. The child which counted goes to search for them and when he finds one of them they change places and another child counts.

My favourite game is "Fipe". It is old and Russian. Many children are able to play this game. At first you should chose a leader. The leader has to find everybody. After that he should run back to his place faster than others. This game is very interesting and we like to play it.

I am 11 and I am from Russia. I want to write about our national game. We have a very interesting game "Fipl". The rules of this game are: 4 or more members are able to take part in this game. At first you should use a counter to choose a leader. The rest of children should run away and hide. A leader counts till 50. After that he begins to look for the children. If he finds some one he should touch him and in this case this child is a leader.

My favourite game is "Hide- and- Seek". I'm going to explain to you how to play it:
A group of children will make the choice and the child who will be the last has to close his eyes and to count until the other players will hide themselves. After these ones have hidden themselves, the child ho waited for them to hide will have to look for them. The last player who was found will have to take his place and to go on the game. Do you like this game?

Hello, my name is James. I am 10 years old and I am in Grade 4. I go to Vineland School in Ontario, Canada.
We play games at school. I like a game called Kozma hockey. It is like real hockey but we use hard sponge sticks and pucks. That way no one will get hurt. We also play a game called Dodge Ball. The kids are in a circle with one person in the middle. A soft bouncy ball is then tossed at the kid in the middle until he gets hit. The person that hit him goes in the middle. We also play touch tag or freeze tag. One person is 'IT' and we run from the person and hope to not get touched. If we do we are 'it'. Freeze tag you have to stop running until someone comes up to you and unfreezes you.
They are fun games.

My favorite game is Freddie. Many people can play this game. In this game someone must frighten other people and it is very nice. When I'm playing this game I'm scared. It is like the film "Nightmares on Elm Street".

Моя любимая игра - это Фредди. Мне нравится эта игра. В этой игре могут
играть много людей. Кто-то должен пугать других детей, и это очень здорово. Когда я играю в эту игру, мне страшно. Она как фильм "Кошмар на улице Вязов".
