This is a good game for young people learning the letters. For older people, try using it as the starting point for another improvisational game, where they have to use the items thay came up with in this song.

  • The popular song YMCA is played and sung, and the participants sing the song while making the Y-M-C-A shapes with their bodies.
  • You make up your own version using as many four-letter words as the class can come up with. 3. Use a new line such as, “It’s fun to play with a…” BEAR, or CART, DRUM, DOLL, BOOK, and so on. It’s fun to play with a… (BEAR) It’s fun to play with a… (BEAR) You can have a good time You can make lots of fun You can laugh until you are done!
  • Choose one new word a day and show participants how to make the letter shape before you sing. Eventually the class will have a long list of words that they know.
