This is a gesture version of Dictionary/Pictionary (similar to Charades). It can be played alone, like Dictionary, or as one part of Dictionary-Pictionary-Gestionary, when students must, from a list of 3-5 words, do each of the patterns (draw, say or do) at least once. These three games together help students to practice both expressive, and receptive, skills in different ways of communication, all important to anyone trying to communicate!
