Post Clothes Shopping
This is a slight twist on the other shopping games I found in here.

Go to the domino maker.

For the picture, put in a hat, t-shirt, jeans, and jacket.

For the word-side, write "small", "medium", or "large".

Students each get 6 cards.

The goal is to get a hat, jacket, jeans, and t-shirt all in the same size.

Students go around taking turns being the buyer and seller.

S1: May I help you?
S2: Yes, do you have any t-shirts?
S1: How about this one?
(If S1 has no t-shirts he says, "Sorry, I don't have any t-shirts" and S2 can ask for something else.)
S2: That looks great! May I try it on?/ That looks too big. Do you have a medium?
S1: Sure. / Yes, how about this one? (S1 offers medium sized shirt)/ No.

Next S2 is the seller.

A more simple dialouge is:

S2: I'm looking for a t-shirt.
S1: What size?
S2: Medium.
S1: Here you are.
S2: Thank you.

Or you can mix it with Mark's "a shopping game" where students use cash to buy at random. The only difference being that at the end students get a chance to try and exchange the item for a different size.

*If you want to use more articles of clothing (dress, shoes, gloves), then just have two sizes (small, large / kids, adults), or give students a lot more cards to start with.

*Another alternative that helps you add more clothing, you can make the goal 5 articles of any different clothing in the same size, or 3 articles of the same piece of clothing in different sizes.
