5 Option 1: Movement Song Favorites, Free Play

For this end of the school year lesson, there are 2 options.

1 - select the link below to go to the Movement Song Favorites module
There are 17 favorite songs for your kids to sing and move with. (or just move!)

Students may also enjoy free dance or free play time.

Free Play - Put 4 tubs of instruments on the floor - Woods, Metals, Shakes/Scrapes, Drums. Send the students to one of the 4 tubs. Signs to put on your tubs are included in supporting resources. (You could print a second set of signs for you to point to when it’s time to switch tubs.)
Play an age appropriate pop song and invite the students with woods to play along. Pause. When you restart, invite the metals to play. Continue until all students have had a turn.

Free Dance - play an age appropriate pop song and invite the students to dance to the music. You could play "freeze dance" with it. Stop the music and students have to stop and freeze. If they are caught moving they sit down.
