Materials Required: recording of the song "The Name Game"
Activity Time: 10 minutes
Concepts Taught: recognizing rhyming patterns, movement

I downloaded a recording of "The Name Game" (Ana, Ana, Bo Bana, Banana, Nana Fo Fana) and saved in "My Documents". Then I created a powerpoint presentation based on the words of the song. Each slide had some of the words of the song and a funny picture from clip art. Once I finished the slides, I added the music to go along with each of the slides. I used my CD burner to record onto a CD. I've used this in my second grade class, and my kids have loved it! They like being able to see the words on the slides as they move to the music and sing along. It has really reinforced rhyming in my class!
