Children and Teacher sit in a circle.  The Teacher chants.  “Let’s have a pow wow pow wow pow wow, we have a pow wow hands up!”  The children need to follow the movements of the Teacher and the Rhythm of the chant.  The children may clap on every other word, and slap knees on the in between words.  Or open hands on every other word and close them on the in between words. Any movement can be used.  The idea is to teach rhythm and to help children hear it as well as visualize it.

Hint: The teacher may ask each child, one by one, to give her the two movements for the chant.  By the time you make it around the whole circle, most children have the rhythm down!
