- A song with the months or days used in the lyrics. The students will need to know the song before they play the game.
- Start by getting the students into a circle. Bigger classes may require 2 or 3 circles.
- Each student hovers their right hand under the student to their right's hand. The left hand hovers over the student to their left's hand. Right hand under, left hand over.
- The game starts when the song starts.
- For every month or day of the week that the students sing, they clap their right hand upward. The left hand doesn't move yet.
- When the last month or day (or target month or day) is spoken, students try to pull their left hand away so that it isn't touched.
- If their left hand is clapped, they are out and move to the center of the circle in order to cheer on the remaining students.
- The last two students are the winners.
- Reset and repeat.
- Inner circles can be created so that the "out" students can keep playing.
- Choose a target month or day for the left hand pull.
- Make sure students don't beat each other.
