When we need to tell someone what to do, such as in instruction manuals, giving directions, and when learning lessons at school, we use verbs in the imperative form. In other words, imperatives are commands.
Fold the paper.
Turn left at the corner.
Shut the door please.
Watch the video to learn more about imperatives, and then play the popular American game, Simon Says.
How to play Simon Says (three or more people):
John: Peter, Simon says put your right hand on your left ear.
(Peter puts his right hand on his left ear)
Peter: Mary, Simon says sit down.
(Mary sits down)
Mary: John, stand on one leg.
(John stands on one leg)
Peter and Mary: YOU'RE OUT, JOHN! Simon didn't say!
