Clap Me Your Name

  • "Clap Me Your Name" is a simple song designed to practise clapping syllables in preparation for teaching rhythm.
  • Three verses are included as examples of how to fit names in the song with different numbers of syllables. Insert the names of your students.
  • I generally use this song after I have done some clapping of names with students in other lessons.
