Name songs are great because they make each child feel acknowledged and unique. By clapping name songs the children are learning how many beats or syllables are in their name. I would recommend to anyone who is leading group time.
sing the song while passing the letter bag.when the song stops have the child holding the bag reach in, pull out a letter and say its name/sound. (Or say a word with that letter.spell a word starting with that letter.use the word in a sentence.
