歌唱游戏

歌唱游戏习惯一边唱歌,一边以围圈圈的方式进行,所以又称围圈歌唱游戏。当Itiskit-Itasket这首歌进行时,手帕会在特定时刻掉落,而追逐游戏就此展开。

1939年,一群黑人小女孩在位于德州纽顿郡的校园内游戏时,留下了这段特别的丢手帕游戏 (Itiskit-Itasket) 记录片段。您记得这首歌吗?您分辨得出歌词的差别吗?



Singing games are often played by standing in a circle while singing the song, so they became known as ring games. In "Itiskit-Itasket" a handkerchief is dropped at a certain point and then a chase begins.

This particular recording of Itiskit-Itasket came from a group of African American girls playing in a schoolyard in Newton County, Texas, in 1939. Do you remember this song? Do you know different words to the song?
