Invite a group of children to the front of the class and say the following rhyme (about counting geese) as you count around the group: une oie, deux oies, trois oies, quatre oies, cinq oies, six oies, sept oies (sept oies is pronounced like c'est toi - it's you) On the seventh point to the child and say C’est toi!
The chant is also in the book (and CD) Un, deux, trois:First French Rhymes by Opal Dunn
