Warm up activity:

Freeze Dance:

1. Tell children to gather in one place

2. Start music and tell children to dance

3. Stop the music and explain to children to freeze when music stops


1. Have children sit in a circle

2. Start a rhythm

3. Once members have the rhythm down, explain that you are going to start saying a word on one part of the rhythm, the next student says the word and so on and so forth.

4. Keep adding words to the rhythm

5. If a child hesitates, does not realize it is their turn, or disrupts the rhythm, they are out.

Praise children as they follow the rhythm

Ask children to create their own rhythms

This is a really fun game to get children involved in. It's great for hand-eye coordination and is musical! My kids love playing this game, they always challenge me to come up with harder rhythms to follow. It can even be fun for the children to create their own rhythms for others to follow!
