Game by Lucinda Geoghegan 
Formation: Circle sitting, "Johnny" is in the centre with eyes closed. 
Directions: The circle sings the song and can substitute the name of the child in the centre if preferred. 
While the class sings the teacher can point to two students silently to take on the role ofthe brother and the mother. 
"1 told Ma" is sung individually by the brother, "1 told Pa" is sung individually by the mother, then the circle finishes 
the final phrase (substituting the centre child's name). "Johnny" has to guess which students sang to him. 
Then another child is chosen to o to the centre and the game begins again.
