Activity 1:  Body Percussion

This week, we introduced body percussion activities to help the children develop awareness of sounds and rhythms. Some examples of body percussion include: clapping hands, foot stamping, thigh slapping, finger  clicking, kissing sound with lips, tongue clicking, humming, grunting,  toe tapping, fairy clapping (two fingers), fairy tapping (index finger on table top), click fingers and whistle.

Not only is body percussion a pre-reading skill, but singing and music are some of the first ways that we experience mathematics. Counting a beat and recognising patterns are both basic maths concepts.

Below are a couple of action songs that your child can sing while clapping, patting their knees or stamping their feet.
