Movement Activities for Spring

Movement Activities for Spring

Start your class with a movement activity?  Are u CRAZY? Probably! I’ll put a movement activity on the screen and as soon as I’ve gathered my students into the classroom, I turn on the song and get moving.  Movement activities for spring can help students transition to music class, motivate tired testers and uplift you- yes YOU- the teacher. That’s why I’m always either creating or searching for movement activities for spring.

6 MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES FOR SPRING

I’m sharing six movement activities for spring music class. Some of these resources are FREEBIES and some are brand new resources I’ve made this year.

In addition, there’s also links to other blog posts where you can find more ideas and materials for your spring music classes.

I know my students love bugs, and so I created some bug themed movement activities.

BUGGY MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES FREEBIE RESOURCE WHEN YOU SUBSCRIBE

In addition, I was thinking how to set the stage for my buggy activities and I came up with the idea to use  a classical selection to set the scene.

Furthermore, since the bugs are all flying, hopping and swooping through flower gardens, I felt like this music would give us a good setting of a garden.

Here’s some YouTube selections of classical music that I’ll be using with my buggy movement activities.

Haydn The Seasons [HD] – Spring part 3: song of joy LINK

As well as being a “spring” song, students would enjoy the duet. In fact, you could ask them to move “high” and “low” during the respective sections of the song.

Tchaikovsky – Waltz of the Flowers LINK

And now it’s time for some buzzing, swooping, flying, swishing and . . .

Rimsky-Korsakov. The Flight of the Bumble Bee LINK

El Grillo The cricket by Josquin des Prez LINK

Perhaps it’s raining?  All the bugs scurry and hide beneath the leaves or to the hive.

Frédéric Chopin’s “Raindrop” Prelude, Op 28, No. 15 LINK

And more buzzing!


 Chopin: Étude Op. 25, No. 2 // The Bees LINK

Ben Lepetit – Béla Bartók Mikrokosmos No. 142, From the Diary of a Fly   LINK

Likewise, although titled “Morning”, Edvard Grieg: “Peer Gynt – Morning Mood” LINK   would make a nice interlude between “busy” bug activities.

I’m thinking that the bugs have found their favorite flowers and now are resting before they begin collecting more honey, or pollen.  

Little bugs, it’s now time to rest for tomorrow brings a new day to fly!

(Can you tell I love these kinds of activities?)
