Set Up

Sit or stand in a circle


Have everyone start slowly with the rhythm: slap, slap, snap, snap. The slaps are on the knees with both hands at the same time, and the snaps are on the right hand then the left hand.

One person is designated as the leader, and s/he sets the pace. The object of the game is to get to the leader’s spot.

The leader begins the rhythm, and on one set of snaps says his/her name on the first, and someone else’s on the second (your name MUST always be said on the first snap, and someone else's name on the second snap).

The person who’s name is called must respond on the next set of snaps by saying his/her own name and then someone else’s. If the person does it correctly, the game continues. If the person does not do it quickly enough or loses the rhythm, s/he must move to the end (the seat to the right of the leader) and the rest of the group moves up a seat (toward the leader’s spot) to fill in the seats. Game continues until group has learned names well.
