How To Play: This is a call and response activity. While seated
in a circle, leader “calls” by patting his knees, clapping his hands
and/or snapping his fingers in a basic rhythmic pattern. The student to
his right “responds” by creating a different short rhythmic pattern of
his own. Leader then repeats his initial rhythm. Then everyone
simulta┬Čneously repeats the response of the student to the leader’s
right. Leader then calls again (he uses the same rhythm each time he
calls) and the next student responds with her unique rhythm. Continue
around the circle: each student listens to the leader’s call and
responds with his own rhythm; then, after the call is repeated by the
leader, everyone simultaneously repeats the response in question.
