In And Out The Dusty Bluebells

This simple circle game is terrific for:

  • Preparing, teaching and practising tika-tika (semiquavers / sixteenth notes).
  • Developing social skills through play.

Teaching tip: For students to accurately tap the rhythm in the chorus, it helps to have a steady tempo (i.e. not too fast!).
