Miss Mary Mack

This popular partner clapping game is great for:

  • Teaching the melodic element 'ti'.
  • Co-ordination!
  • Having fun!
  • Encouraging singing in the playground. (Once children know this song, they often singing it with the clapping game in the playground, waiting for the school bus, waiting for the bell to ring, etc. etc.!)
