HI, I'm a Waldorf teacher in Wisconsin and I am teaching this stick game to my 2nd graders!

My words are along the lines of the Maori

Mah ku E toe kay noh a way kee wee tah nay

I make up my own patterns and rhythms. Some are with only one stick, some with two. We tap, click, flip, and double flip when we get really good. The tune is really simple but I have no way of posting it here!

We make our own sticks by sawing and sanding dowels. Great fun.
