To play on Zoom: Choose a guesser who hides eyes. Choose another student to be Tommy Tiddlemouse.
Tommy Tiddlemouse sings, "Who Am I?" alone at the end of the song.
The guesser gets 3 tries to guess who sang alone.
In-person: play the recording instead of singing. The child who is Tommy Tiddlemouse will say, "Who Am I?" instead of singing.

Think about ways you could adapt the game for zoom or in-person.
Zoom: Everyone be "partners" with the teacher.
in-person: play the recording and do the movements
Watch the movement that the kids do.
Adapt for Zoom: Find something to use for rhythm sticks - 2 spoons will work.
Have students take 7 steps forward, then 7 steps backward.
Instead of the claps, click sticks 1-2-3, 1-2-3,
Then turn in their own circle for 8 beats. (Repeat sticks and turn)
Adapt the same way for in-person.
