Are your students ready for springtime? Are you ready? Springtime brings a whole new set of dynamics into the music classroom. Students are “wiggly”, they want to be outside playing, testing is ongoing and the school year is winding down. My first of the year lessons are significantly different than the lessons I’m using right now. The difference is that I’m using movement activities as the main event! The learning goals are achieved through students moving. So, for the week after Easter, I’m using some bunny themed activities in my classroom. That’s why I want to share with you this free bunny movement activity song.

CREATE A MOVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Students love to create their own movements.
After teaching the song, have students get in small groups and explore what other “moves” bunny can do. Have them practice and perform for the class.
Creative movement is an essential part of the elementary music curriculum.
Check out these blog posts with creative movement activities for your classroom.
Lastly, give students opportunities to create rhythms that imitate the other sounds in the garden where bunny lives.
I love watching my students doing all these interactive activities during April. I’m hoping the you’ll find some fun ways to use the bunny movement activity song in your classroom this spring.
