Clapping Games

Our friends around the world are having fun with playground songs and clapping games. Naturally, the Techie Kids wanted to join in. Here are some of our clapping games.

  1. Hi Everyone,
    Your postcard arrived yesterday and we are all very excited as it is our very first card! We have posted a reply so keep an eye on your letterbox! We have added your class to our blogroll and have visited your site and had a look at some of the great things you’ve been up to.

  2. Concentration … what a grand effort! I love the bits of video when the people laugh, it’s naturally …natural.
    I am exploring several playground ideas at the moment and i am trying to set one or two things up. However I have lots of less interesting things to do as well…like inspecting ladders and fixing the tap that wouldn’t stop in the girls toilet!
    I am going to have to find a way to watch Vimeo in school. I just can’t think why it’s blocked. Watch out for some new videos very soon.

    • Dear Mr. E,

      I like concentration and boom snap clap. I got to film that and me and Mrs. Moore couldn’t figure out how to put the videos on but we finally figured it out.

  3. To the Techiekids,

    Hi our names are Ashlee and Patricia. We have just been looking at your blog. It is very good. We like kerpoof games and we like how you can make stories and pictures on the kerpoof games. Do you have any other activites on your blog not only kerpoof games? At our campus we have three schools, Nativity, Thiele and Pilgrim. Our school is Nativity. At Nativity we have a playground and a few buildings and between the new building and the old building there is a cola (covered outdoor learning area)

  4. Hi TechieKids,

    Our names are Millie and Luke and we have been looking at your blog. We like one of your clapping games and it is called boom snap clap. Adelaide is surrounded by beaches. What is your school name?

  5. Dear Techie Kids,
    I really enjoyed all three clapping games, but I would have to say that Concentration was my favourite because I played it when I was your age too. We used claps and snaps in our version though.

    I also liked your McDonalds clapping song. It reminded me of a McDonalds jingle from when I was a kid:
    Big Mac
    Filet o’Fish
    Quarter Pounder
    French Fries
    Icy Cokes
    Thick Shakes
    Sundaes and Apple Pies
    I actually called in to a radio show when I was little and one a prize for being able to say it.

    Thanks so much for bringing back some great childhood memories!

  12. Dear Techie Kids,

    My favorite playground game is McDonald.

    I liked McDonald’s because I liked the hand movements
    and I thought they did a great job.

  15. Dear Morgan and Nina,

    I wonder how long it must have taken for you to learn that hand shake.
    You guys must have took you a long time and stressed you out.
    It was amazing how you did the hand shake.

    Your techie friend,

    • Hey Dillon,

      Some of those people are my friends. :)
      Like the Filmer for the second two Don.


  16. Dear Alexis and Courtny,

    I have a friend in 5th grade. Her name is Kayla. She taught me McDonalds as well. She is a great friend you girls might even know her. Well thats enough from me. Bye!


  17. Dear Morgan and Nina,

    I think you did a great job! It is so much fun to do concentration! Did you guys mess up a lot?

  18. Dear….Everyone,

    The only song I knew was concentration! But I really like Boom,Snap,Clap.
    It’s cool. Just one problem…I don’t know how to snap!! :( I know McDonald’s but in a different way, it goes like this:

    Welcome to McDonald’s
    May I take your order
    Curly Fries
    Big Mac
    Cherry Coke
    Apple Pie.
    That’s how it goes! I would tell you the moves but I forgot them.

    Your Friend,
    Techie Kids
