Tempos Fun

Tempos in music and dance are slow, medium, and fast.  Students explored doing movements to various tempos.  Then, we did the Chicken Dance which starts with a medium tempo, then progresses to fast, and super fast. The Chicken Dance also teaches students about movement patterns.  You can look up the Chicken Dance on YouTube.  It`s a fun dance to do with your child - maybe even your Thanksgiving guests. 

Happy Thanksgiving! Eat, Rest, Repeat. Be Grateful!
