Learn the fingerplay "Criss Cross Applesauce"
Adapt for no-touch in person with the kids as follows:
criss cross - make an X on your own front
spiders crawling up your back - crawl the spiders up your own leg, arm, to head
cool breeze - blow on your hands
tight squeeze - hug yourself
Now you've got the shivereez - tickle your self.
Encourage kids to try this at home with a parent or sibling.
If you are in person, you could do this activity by playing high/low sounds on a xylophone.
Or a big drum, small drum.
If using the video, have students identify the sounds and tell if they are high or low.
This is a difficult concept for little ones to grasp. It might take all year for some kids to understand high and low.
Learn to sing, "Five Little Pumpkins"
This setting was written to give the children practice singing so-mi pitches.
This setting is non-Halloween as it uses the words, "leaves in the air"
If you are in person and can use Orff instruments, have the children accompany their singing with a C-G bordun.
