Dance Break!

I like to move it, move it.  I like to move it, move it.  First and second graders like ....MOVE IT!  Dance break! 
One of the things that we LOVE to do to help with the mid day sillies is take a dance break.  There is nothing better than letting loose with our kiddos and shaking our groove thing!  
What about the "too cools" you ask?  Well...we let them be to cool for awhile and then we find the song or music video they just can't RESIST!  They may start out with the "elbow bop" or the pocket wiggle...and then, well pure fun conquers!

We found using YouTube videos really helps everyone feel comfortable dancing and then we bring in just music so they can show off their own moves.  We thought that you may enjoy a few of the dances our kiddos CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF!
Eric Herman is an awesome artist with really creative songs and music videos. 
We always have "ants in our pants" in first and second grade so why not dance like you have...
Ants in Your Pants

 Or..Hip Hop Tooty Ta

BUT their FAVORITE right now is..
The Sid Shuffle - Ice Age: Continental Drift

Keep on Dancing in Your Teacher Shoes!

    My kiddos love the cd Brain Boogie Boosters....the songs on there are great for brain breaks.
