Everybody Dance Now!

As the weather starts to cool down, we will be spending more time indoors.  To get our kiddos a movin' and a groovin', we will often end our day with a 'Dance Party'.  We  have some old Rock Band guitars and 'the band' will play will everyone else dances.  Sometimes we just dance but we also do some dances together. here are some dances we will be doing together---

*The Hokey Pokey---do a search for Little Richard's version.  Best Hokey Pokey version ever!
*The Chicken Dance
*The Macarena---it's a pattern!
*Who Let the Dogs Out?---we move the chairs out from the tables and the children crawl and bark (this is a lot more fun than it sounds)
*Born to Be Wild---with this classic by Steppenwolf  the children pretend to get on motorcycles, we put on helmets, start our engines (yes, it's loud) and we form a long line and 'ride' until the teacher says, "RED LIGHT" and everyone stops.  "GREEN LIGHT" and we all go.  This is a lot of fun.

There are a lot more songs that we play but you get the idea.  Get up and get moving!  Clear the furniture and have a dance party with your child!
