Get Up To Get Down is a high energy brain breaks song that gives children an opportunity to increase their physical activity, improve listening skills and learn to follow directions while getting the wiggles out. Children will love this brain breaks song. They get to do a large variety of movements as they listen and follow directions. Kids twist, shake, roll their arms, go right and left, rope like a cowboy and more in this super fun brain breaks song.
This is a great storytime opener! Usually I start with another song to get the wiggles out and then use this after everyone sits down to focus and prepare for stories. They love it! (One of the great things is that if they don't know the song, everyone can help count down at the end!)
SINGING TIME IDEA: Angry bird review game. For singing time: 2 teams, 1 judge. One side of a room sings a song, if its perfect, strong... they can stack all the cups, weak, they only get a few. Other team gets 3 tries to catapult it down. Sr primary has to stand farther away. However many cups are still standing is how many points the singing team gets. Then the other side gets a chance to sing.
