Clap to It!

1998 Home Video

VHS Price: $12.95
Review:
There is a timeless simplicity about clapping games. Children need no equipment but their hands and their voices, and they must cooperate in order to play. They practice their sense of rhythm, gain a sense of accomplishment, and use their sense of nonsense. It would be difficult to improve upon this instructional video. Children demonstrate the games at various speeds, and clear instructions are given. Time is taken for repetition and close-ups of the hand movements. Rather than include a large variety of clapping games, just a few are highlighted. Children can learn them well, and their interest will be sparked. A small, attached idea booklet suggests ways that the games could be used as springboards to more learning - math concepts, storytelling, vocabulary.

This production is a fine example of "simple is best." The clapping games speak for themselves!
