Directions: Have children sit in a circle. Explain that you will hum a tune. If they know the tune they can smile at you. When most of the class is smiling, say, “one, two, two, three tell.” All the children say the answer at the same time. Continue humming tunes as children try and identify the songs.
*Let children take turns humming tunes as their classmates try to name that tune!
