Clap Slap Teacher Training

This is a group energizer activity. Have students sit in a circle and start a steady rhythm of two claps, followed by two knee slaps. As this rhythm continues, start by modeling the activity. When clapping and slapping, you would say the following chant: My name is … (your name - for example, Debbie). I come from … (a place, for example, Dubai), and I sell ... (something, for example, detergent). Each blank that you fill in has to start with the same letter/sound as your name. Once one person finishes, the rhythm continues and you go the entire way around the circle, attempting to keep the rhythm going.
