When I heard the theme for this week at Education Closet was “Spring Cleaning”, I started to think about how I would start to feel over the course of the month of March when I was a classroom teacher. March sometimes felt interminable, especially in Vermont! The song with movements I am going to share with you today can be a great tool for enlivening or refocusing the class’ energy, sharing some serious silliness (I’ve even seen it used at a staff meeting with great success!), and make an uplifting transition activity for students. Please be sure to sing and move along as you watch and then keep it in your pocket ready to pull out when you need it most! Just click on the song title below and get ready to sing….
