The little chant I came up with this month is one of the many settings I use to incorporate rhythm sticks into my music therapy sessions and early childhood music classes. “Clatter Clatter Clackity Clack” is just a framework for using all of those skills — listening, grasping, reproducing a pattern, and more — while playing the rhythm sticks.

Please note that this download does not include a lead sheet, because it does not have a melody. The words to this chant are posted below.

Clatter clatter clackity clack
I’ll play a rhythm and you play it back
So listen close and then you’ll see
That you can tap your sticks like me

My turn first: (play rhythm)
Now your turn: (children repeat rhythm)

Clatter clatter clackity clack
I played a rhythm and you played it back
You listened close and now you see
That you can tap your sticks like me
