It is possible to introduce this game without a team teacher. Fall asleep for a moment and then wake up saying the line "Wake Up!" as you do so. Pause, and say the line "Wake Up!" again. It's important to create some 'space' for the children to hear the line. Then fall asleep again. Wake up immediately when someone uses the line. Avoid responding directly to 'non-English' attempts to wake you up (verbal and non-verbal). Link the action of waking up to the line "Wake Up!". It can be done.
