class into groups of two, and write each group on the board
to keep track of points. Place a desk in the front of the

student in line must call out the next number, and not the
number that has been replaced. For example, 1, 2, 3, beep,
5, 6, 7, beep, 9 etc.

student sits down, begin from 1 again. See how far you can
