Bubblegum in a Dish


(Traditional chant)

Bubblegum bubblegum in a dish
How many pieces do you wish?
[Student answers] Five!
[Count that number] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5


Each student puts out 2 fists. The one who’s counting (“It”) goes around tapping each fist with their own fist while reciting the rhyme. The student who is tapped on the word “wish” says a number. “It” taps that many more fists. The fist that’s landed on last is “out,” and the student puts that fist behind the back. Keep playing until only one fist is left. That person becomes the next “It.” (The game goes faster if each student puts in only one fist.)
