Bring your jump rope and your singing voice! Students will get to move, sing and compete with each other in this weekly recess style class. The folk songs we will be using come from American and Irish playgrounds. Although derived from play, the songs and games in this class have developmental significance as they can advance coordination, timing, social, and language skills. In each 40 minute class, we will learn three songs or chants: a rope skipping song, a partner clapping song...
Students will improve coordination, timing, social, singing and language skills through play.
Students are encouraged to keep playing that games from class throughout the week.
Students should bring a jump rope to class. Students should also print the attached numbers, cut them out, and bring them to class. We will use these numbers to play the interactive games. The songs will be taught aurally in class, but each week, a PDF will be available with the words and music to the songs for reference after class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
