Rum Pum Pum Drum Sequence

From "Mother Goose on the Loose"

Start by hitting drum or tambourine and saying:

Rum pum pum, this is my drum.  Rum pum pum, this is my drum.
My name is ____________, whats your name?

I'm now going to come around the circle, and I'd like each child to tap out their name on the drum, using syllables.  If your child is too young to do it alone take their hand and direct it so they may tap our their own name.  This is a great way to introduce phonics!

Walk around circle encouraging children to tap out their name.  Repeat each child's name and say good morning.
