Have fun with the poem by trying this...

This is a great poem for saying out loud. Read it out loud with 5 or 6 of your friends and each time you say the second syllable in ‘Mosquito’ clap your hands. Mos-QUI(clap)-to. Practise until you are all keeping to the same rhythm and then share your performance with other people. This poem comes from the Caribbean.
