ASL Sign of the Week: Dance

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Dancing Animals (from Librarian Lisa's Storytimes)
This is the way the bunnies hop,
The bunnies hop,
This is the way the bunnies hop,
So early in the morning!
(Other actions can include any other animal and accompanying movement)

Dance anyway you want to (modified from Ms. Meg's Storytime)
Dance anyway that you want to,
Dance anyway that you want to,
Dance anyway that you want to,
But stop when I say FREEZE!
Other verses can include jumping as high as you can, dancing as fast as you can, spinning, etc

I really love to dance by Laurie Berkner

Dance your fingers (from Storytime Katie)
Dance your fingers up,
Dance your fingers down,
Dance your fingers side to side,
Dance them round and round,
Dance them on your shoulders,
Dance them on your head,
Dance them on your tummy,
And put them right to bed!

Craft: We made dancing elephants.

Literacy tip of the week:  Music and dance are a great way for your child to explore sounds and language. As the clap and stomp to a beat they are learning to recognize the sounds that make up words.
