Passing The Stick

Source: Games Without Music For Children

The children sit round the room, or stand in a semi-circle. The teacher
should start the game, standing at the left extremity of the
semi-circle, with the stick in her right hand, and repeat the lines:--

On the floor you see I [1]tap my [1]stick, [1]stick, [1]stick,
Then I [2]pass it to my [3]neighbour quick, quick, quick,
If you know it, then please do the trick, trick, trick.

The children who do not know the game will probably omit to pass the
stick into the left hand; as each one tries to do the trick, the teacher
says 'right' or 'wrong' as the case may be, and those who are wrong are
told to notice particularly how the teacher does it.

[1] Tap floor.

[2] Pass stick from right hand to left.

[3] Give it to neighbour.
