Clap a Friend's Name with Me

8 Songs to Begin a Preschool Day

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.

Pass a bag full of letters around the circle. When the song ends, whoever is holding the bag picks a letter and says its name. {They could also say its sound, a word that begins with that letter, etc}

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.
