In music class, we get to use a giant stretchy band! Not only is the scrunchie fun, but also serves a musical purpose. The stretchy band helps us keep the big/little beat of the song as a group. We can also do difference movements to express difference sections of a song. It has proven to be a music class favorite :)
We've been moving and grooving to these songs all year! Movement with flow allows students to feel space and time and leads to beat competency. Movement also allows for students to connect kinesthetically with the music so that it becomes part of them.
"My Mommy is a Pilot"
Kindergartners sing "My Mommy is a Pilot", one of our monthly hello songs.
