For the past few weeks I have been teaching them greetings and activities for morning meeting. I've found some new ones thanks to pinterest, TPT, and bloggers. I've especially found a bunch that get us moving!
Here are some of our favorites!
1. Cha Cha Slide - It's easy to follow, gets the kids moving, and is so much fun!
2. Get Funky - Another easy to follow, line dance type song. It gets stuck in your head easily!
3. Stomp, Stomp Clap
4. Cupid Shuffle - Yep, that's right we're shuffling. I think it's great practice of the ordinal words "left" and "right". So many of my kiddos still get those confused!
5. Jump Up, Bend Down - Haven't tried this one yet but I think it will be a winner!
I've been using these, along with the brain breaks from 3rd Grade Thoughts to keep us moving and thinking. The kids are loving them! Sometimes I'll even get a "Miss R, I think our brains need a break!"
I use my CD player and my projector to show these and it works great!
