1 Sing the Hello song
- sing the echoes
In this lesson, you will:
Option 1: Movement Song Favorites,
– or –
Option 2: Campfire, Fun Songs
- space students out in a circle
- the teacher creates a movement and everyone copies it
- whenever the teacher likes, point to student on your right who becomes the next leader
- when leader #2 has had a turn, they point to the person on their right who becomes the next leader
The song is usually long enough for everyone to get one turn.
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.
This week we’ll sing some songs that you could sing around the campfire or on a car trip.
