Names in Motion
Teaching Children to Identify Syllables in Words
Also included: open version in which you can substitute your own rhymes.
This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Language Play & Listening Fun.
Your name has a rhyme.
Your name has a beat.
Get ready to move from your head to your feet.
Follow me until you’ve got the notion.
Let’s have fun and put our names in motion.
Clap your hands together to the name. Come on.
“Have fun singing names:
Samantha. Samantha. Michael. Michael.
Maria. Maria. “Have fun singing names”
Pat your hands on your knees to the name. Let’s go.
Two versions of this song are presented: The first version specifies children's names, and the second version allows you to use names of your own choice.
