Beanbag Boogie!

Kindergartners participate in LOTS of movement activities in the music room!  One of our Kindergarten standards is to "respond to contrasts and events in music with gross locomotor and non-locomotor movements."  We use a variety of props to help us experience this standard: scarves, streamers, parachutes, stretchy bands, and beanbags!  One of their favorite movement activities is the "Beanbag Boogie" by Greg and Steve.  The students listen to the song and place their beanbag on different parts of their body.  The song works on movement, balance, following directions, tossing/catching, and freestyle dancing.  So fun!  Here are some snapshots:
