Here's a fun get-to-know-you name game. With children sitting in a circle, introduce the following chant:
All: Hickety-Pickety Bumble Bee
Who can say their name for me? (point to a child)
Adult: Let's all say it.
Adult: Let's clap and say it.
All: Rob-in (clap-clap with syllables)
Adult: Let's whisper it.
All: Rob-in (softly)
Adult: Let's turn off our voices and clap it. (click tongue and pretend to lock lips with a key)
Repeat the chorus, Hickety-Pickety Bumble Bee. Who can say their name for me? Point to another child who then says their name. Game continues until every child has had a turn.
