DIY Dance: Action Words

Creative DancingAction Words

Practice language and communication skills by indentifying and acting out verbs

  • The class will choose a song (or a story) to interpret through dance
    The teacher will lead the group in identifying the verbs (action words) in the song
  • Individually or in small groups, students will create a dance move for each action
  • Students will practice their movements in time with the music (or following along with the story)
  • If there is time, have the students create movements or poses to fill the rest of the song
