Song Games

Chapter 2 of "Music for Special Kids" highlights fun song games that can be played with one child or a group of children. Song games are defined as games that make use of a predetermined musical component, such as melody or rhythm or a known song.

One song game that I use quite frequently is based on the song Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. It's a terrific song to use to increase attending skills, participation and the ability to make a change in routine. You can find the directions for this song game here:

Other song games highlighted in the book are:

What's That Song?
Song Puzzles
Singing and Sequencing and
The Sing and Whistle Game
