    Hula Hoop


    • Kate Lovaglia

      when the "conductor" is in the hoola hoop, students improvise and play on their instrument. If the conductor steps out of the hula hoop, all music stops. Multiple hula hoops can be used to each represent a different category. The kind of movement determines the kind of play.

      I could hula hoop all day when I was a kid. Now I can't hula hoop for 10 seconds.

    great idea This is one of my FAVORITE classroom management tools!! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work. Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer.

    Interesting idea for focus question display

    From Family Fun Magazine - March 2013: Musical Hula Hoops Game: "Each child stands in a hula hoop. When the music starts, the kids walk, hop, and dance around the hoops as one is removed. When the music stops, everyone finds a hoop, even if there's someone in it. Eventually, all the kids try to fit in the last hoop. It's fun for everyone!"

    The M Game...great activity for the first days of school!
