Все дети любят играть в рифмованные игры с движениями. В Англии они называются hand clapping games. Мы подобрали 6 классических английских рифмованных игр с текстами и видео, на которых носители показывают движения в такт.

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
Pat it and roll it and mark it with a B
And put it in the oven for baby and me

Miss Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back
She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence
They jump so high, high, high
They touched the sky, sky, sky
And they never came back, back, back
Til the fourth of july, ly, ly

Crunchy ice
Sip it once (Up Down Clap)
Sip it twice (Up Down Clap)
Lemonade (Up Down Clap)
Crunchy ice (Up Down Clap)
Made it once (Up Down Clap)
Made it twice (Up Down Clap)
Turn around (Turn around)

Kick your boyfriend out of town!

Was the bottom of the deep blue snap, snap, snap.
