"Do This"

Welcome back to More with Music!

I've been staying busy as usual, but have a song to share today.

Today's song is "Do This".  In many of the classrooms I work in, the students are working on identifying body parts.  We all know "The Hokey Pokey" and "Head, shoulders, knees and toes", and those are great songs for young students, but I wanted to add a breath of fresh air to the mix.

When putting this song together, I also wanted to add a verbal cue to motivate students to participate and follow along, so I added the verbal cue (used in many of the classes I work in), "Do this".  This song has worked really well for me.  The repetition and time given for each body part gives the students extra time to participate and be successful with touching each body part.

The body parts mentioned in this song are head, nose, eyes, cheek, mouth, chin, shoulder, wrist, hands, hips, knees, ankles and toes.

I'd love to hear what you think and how you might use this song to help students in your groups and/or private MT sessions.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
