HOW TO TEACH THE SONG AND DANCE

When I teach a song that also has specific movement actions, I’ve found it essential to break down the song and dance into small learning chunks.

First I play the song and encourage students move freely to the music.

Next, I’ll read the lyrics to them, like a story.

Then I’ll have them say the lyrics to me line by line. If you’re having them learn to read or practice reading, you can call on students to take turns reading the sentences, or just read aloud as a class.

I think that moving to the music gives them some motivation to read the lyrics since they’ve heard the music and want to do the dance again.

After we get through the lyrics, I’ll have them sing the song and move freely.

That may be enough for the first class time.

I’ll focus on the dance steps later.

In the resource (paid version) there are posters and task cards that will help you teach the actions.

If you are using the FREEBIE, then you may want to write the words on the board.

SHAKE, KICK, HOP, HOP, HOP!

After students practice the pattern we’re now ready to try it with the music.

I like to have them do the dance and not sing, and then they can put the singing and dancing together.

You can tell by now that this song will make a wonderful holiday program number.

I can see all the kindergarteners trying to SHAKE, KICK, HOP HOP HOP to the music now!

“Santa’s Got a Brand New Dance” is perfect for Preschool through second grade music activities. Students will have fun doing “shake, kick, hop-hop-hop” and dancing. Get the Santa song and dance freebie with coloring printables and activities! SUBSCRIBE HERE
