A tisket, a tasket,
A green and yellow basket.
I wrote a letter to my love (friend)
And on the way I dropped it.


It’s like “Duck Duck Goose.” A student has the basket and walks around behind the other students as everyone sings the song. At the end of the song, the child puts the basket behind a student, then runs around the circle while the other student picks up the basket and chases the first person around the circle and tries to tag the student. The chasing stops when the student who was “it” reaches the hole the 2nd student was just occupying.
