This is a fun ball game that reinforces solo singing. Children in the class will roll the ball to one another (or back and forth between teacher and students) as they sing the song. The child who has the ball at the end of the verse sings, "My name is _______" (s-ml-s-m), and the game continues. The verse is short and easy to learn, and there are multiple repetitions in the recording to facilitate multiple rounds of game play.
The SMART Activity includes two rhythm activities that reinforce ta, ti-ti and ta rest. The first is a rhythm fill-in activity, while the second invites students to notate the rhythm of their names.
