Home Learning – Body Percussion


  1. Learn some action rhymes, such as “Wind the bobbin up”
  2. Play some commercially produced tapes and CD-ROMs. Clap along with familiar rhymes and learn new ones.
  3. Listen to the sounds your feet make when walking, running or skipping; slowly, softly, fast, stomping hard, in flipflops, boots, high heels.
  4. Try different types of clapping; clap your hands softly, fast and make a pattern for your child to follow. Do the same, clapping your thighs or stamping your feet. Tap your fingers. Click your tongue.
  5. Invent a special family clap routine for when someone does something really well.
