I love to use the nursery rhyme “These Chicks” when I do Arabic story time at the public library.
This adorable rhyme has less than 20 words and is simple for kids to learn at an early age. Behind a few of the words a clicking sound is made, twice, to give it a rhythmic beat.
I came across the song while looking for things to do with the kids as I start a new library next week for younger children. It is from this great website Mama Lisa that showcases world traditions.
Here is how it is sung in Arabic, the stars indicate where to place the clicking.
Around their mother
They drink water**
They say yum**
They lift their heads
Count their blessings
