|Our students learned from each other by watching the videos we took!|
The two main "I CAN" statements we use are, "I CAN MOVE TO MUSIC" and "I CAN KEEP THE BEAT". I was able to capture a few of the dances on video. Check them out below! We used videos of our own students to teach the rest of the school. The students LOVED seeing their friends (and sometimes brothers or sisters) in the videos.
This first video is showing how the students practiced keeping the beat with a partner before we added the music.
Partner dance to the song "Buffalo Gals". This was so fun with the music!
Next we did this dance in a CIRCLE formation. Circle dances take a lot of teamwork and cooperation!
Our third graders did a fantastic job with SQUARE dancing!
The students enjoyed this aerobic dance to the song Magic. There are some great P.E. teachers who post awesome dances on youtube! Thanks to Chad Triolet and his crew!
