Jump In Jump Out


(Traditional chant, adapted by Beth Thompson)

All:            Let’s go – Jump in, jump out, turn yourself about,
                 I said, Jump in, jump out, introduce yourself.
Student:  My name is ________
All:            Yeah
Student:  And I like _______
All:            Uh huh. Your name is _______ (say student’s name)
Student:  Yeah
All:            And you like __________
Student:  Uh huh

(Repeat with another student taking a turn.)
