WAYS TO USE THIS RESOURCE:

STATIONS OR CENTERS- Students love to create things and play games. In this resource you’ll find 6 activities you can use in Stations and Centers that provide these opportunities for student engagement.

BUILD CLASSROOM COMMUNITY- As students play together, they will develop relationships. Freeze dance is an “individual” activity where everyone can do their own interpretation of the movements and there’s no right or wrong way to do them. This kind of activity creates a fair playing ground for everyone. You can compliment and point out how each student is doing the actions. You can play copy cat or have some students showcase their groovy moves. Use this activity as part of your class meetings and then talk about how everyone moves differently, but we’re all having fun and doing it together.

TEACH THE ACTIONS- Scroll through the video and teach the actions. When I scroll I mute the music so that it doesn’t bother students ears or make them giggle. That way you can use the video to teach the actions. You may want to demonstrate how you want students to move and help them define their personal space.

TIMING- Use the video for a minute of for the full length.

TRANSITION- Have students finished their work? Use 1 minute of the video as a transition activity.

Or, use the activity to help students move from desks to going to the library. Have them stand up 2 minutes early and play freeze dance- then line up to go to lunch or other activities.

BRAIN BREAK- Have students been sitting and need a brain break? You can use this freeze dance activity to help students stay focused. Students need brain breaks especially if they’ve been sitting for a while or testing. You can start the video at any time and let it run for the length of time you want the kids to have a brain break.

REWARD ACTIVITY- I use games and freeze dance activities right before a holiday. You can use them during the weeks you know students are more distracted and need help channeling their energy.

Overall, you’ll find that MOVE AND FREEZE ACTIVITIES can be a great addition to your teacher tool box.

WHY MOVEMENT IS IMPORTANT:

Use the video to keep students busy while you set up or clean up,, rainy day, snow day, recess, assess or work with individual students and in your virtual classrooms.
