Circle, circle, circle 'round.
Let's all sit down on the ground.
Let's all play a real fun game,
While we learn each others names.

Here's a ball, I'll roll to you.
When you catch it, here's what you do.
Say your name, loud and clear, (Child who catches ball, says his/her name.)
Then we all clap and cheer. (Everyone claps and says "Yea")

Then roll the ball, to someone new.
They will catch it just like you.
They will also say their name. (New child who catches ball, says his/her name.)
That is how we play this game. (Continue playing game.)

We will work and we will play.
We'll have fun many ways.
Here is what we're going to do.
Listen, so you'll have fun, too! (Adult explains to group what they are going to do)
