Chatter-Stack can be played individually, or in a group 2-4 players.
Spread the magnets face up on table/fridge or other magnetic surface. Take turns in clockwise direction to choose a specific magnet of your choice to continue the story being developed.
Magnets can be placed in a sequential row above the others to distinguish them from the rest.
Deal the magnets out to players like you would a deck of cards. Game for 2-4 players.
Each player gets a turn to place the story magnet on the table/magnetic surface The player continues the story with the magnet that has be chosen. Either the magnets are upside down and chosen randomly, or the players choose their next story magnet as they see fit.
Think of and sort the magnets into different categories depending on the ability and age of the players. E.g.: alive/not alive
This is a perfect game to play with EAL learners, younger siblings/toddlers to develop and enhance vocabulary.
Spread cards over table. Fridge. Ask learners to find specific items. e.g.: Find the cake? Where is the bicycle?
Ask specific questions about the individual magnets. EG: What colour is the girls dress?
