The Clapping Game

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: David Holley

The game is called the clapping game. It encourages good group work and listening skills and can help to develop the childrens sense of rhythm.

There are 2 teams, 1 team consists of the teacher and the other is the whole class. The teacher claps a pattern and the children then copy the pattern. If the teacher only claps once then the children must not clap. If they do then the teacher gets the point and if they do not then they get the point.

You let them know that you want to win and they will never beat you will encourage them to try even harder.
