Jingle Bell Dance

If you’re anything like me you’re trying to keep students interested in learning when all they are interested in is being excited for the Holidays.  Why not let them do both!  This is a great activity to do with your students when they need to burn off some energy (and you want to burn off some of those extra holiday cookies that keep appearing in the teacher’s lounge).

I was going to type this all out but I found GREAT directions at http://www.edu-cyberpg.com/Music/JINGLE_BELLS__DANCE.html

I’ve not done it this exact way.  In their first step, they mention the children walking CCW (counter clock-wise) with their inside hands joined.  That is pretty easy- to make it harder you can have them hold hands and do a heel, toe, heel, toe, CCW slide, slide, slide, slide, and then reverse for the rest of the phrase.

It’s really fun and perfect for that last day before break or when their teacher has dropped them off at music after their Holiday party.
