Syllables

Type of Game Just Meeting, Circle Game
Number of Participants unlimited, larger groups may want to split into two
Materials none
Where to Play inside or outside

How To Play:
Everyone stands in a circle so that they can all see one another.

Have the participants count the number of syllables in their name and then come up with an action or dance move for each syllable. Once the first participant has said his/her name and performed their action, the whole group repeats it.

The next participant repeats the process and the whole group repeats the second participant’s name/action and then the first participant’s name/action. This continues until the last participant has gone and the group repeats all of the names/actions.

Example:
Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder are playing this game. Ariel has 3 syllables in her name so she says “A (step to the left), ri (step to the right), el (puts both arms in the air).” Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder then repeat Ariel’s name while doing her actions.

Next, Sebastian says “Se (shakes hips), bas (turns around), tian (jumps in the air).” Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder repeat Sebastian’s name while doing his actions and then say Ariel’s name with doing her actions.

Finally, Flounder says “Floun (puts left arm out), der (puts right arm out).” Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder repeat Flounder’s name while doing his actions and then proceed to repeat Sebastian’s and then Ariel’s.
