Community Level 2 – Familiar

Materials: None

How To Play: Standing in a circle, all players start by clapping
their own hands together in front of themselves and then clapping hands
with the person on either side of them simultaneously. The players form a
rhythm using the following chant:

Czechoslovakia, Boom Sha Boom (all clap in rhythm in a circle)
Yugoslavia, Boom Sha Boom (all clap in rhythm in a circle)

Let’s get the rhythm of the hands (pause clapping)
(all clap three times)

Let’s get the rhythm of the feet
(all stamp feet three times)

Let’s get the rhythm of the arms
Uh-1, uh-2, uh-3 (raise one arm up, then the other, and then lower both)

Let’s get the rhythm of the eyes
(Bend both arms low to the ground and raise them up as the voice goes from low to high and say, “Whew!”)

Plan for Success: Practice the simultaneous clapping between the players before adding the chant.
