Pat a cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, Baker's man!
Bake us a cake as fast as you can,
Mix it and prick it
And mark it with B,    
And put it in the oven for baby and me.

Clap hands as you say the rhyme:
  • babies and toddlers can be gently tapped in time to the beat;
  • young children do a simple clap;
  • older children could clap knees and hands alternating
  • more difficult would be to face a partner and clap their hands and then your own alternating.
DEVELOPMENT: a sense of rhythm (amongst other things)
