3 Play Freeze Dance with the music

Play Freeze Dance with the music.

Invite the kids to move to the beat - dance, twist, hop, turn, sway.

The teacher starts the music. When the teacher hits pause, all FREEZE.
Some teachers play this as an elimination - if you're moving after the music stops, you sit down.
- a fun variant is to have the kids freeze and make a pose. You might make a pose like a pumpkin or cat or skeleton.
