After a week of two hours delays, sugared up children, and assemblies. I sit here with a smile, a heating pad, and a burrito the size of my head. It’s a great feeling to be done for a few days, get a break, and enjoy the holidays. Today I thought I would share videos off of my ever growing YouTube playlist that I have used with my holiday themed lessons this week.
Muppet Carols– I like to play quick games of, Guess that Carol! and have short sing-a-longs with these videos to teach my students the classics that they should know if they celebrate Christmas! and c’mon..IT’S THE MUPPETS!!
Movement Break- I love to dance in class and lately I’ve turned to YouTube to teach the students and I more dances, this video is from Just Dances Kids 2 and is a great dance to the tune of Jingle Bells.
Shake Break – Have a class of sugared up kids that just cannot sit still? Try this shake break before moving on with the lesson!
Nutcracker- Teaching your students about the Nutcracker? Check out this video, it is a great example from the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.
