These Back to School Movement Cards (And Book!) get your students moving and help them improve gross motor skills, following directions skills and imitation skills. They also help students learn school themed vocabulary.
There are so many ways to use this book and associated cards. Use it during circle time, as a warm up activity, as a small group language activity, before or after transitions or a time filler activity that will keep your students' attention and let them get their "wiggles" out.
The teacher reads through the book and models movements as students imitate them. Students can also practice choosing a movement card and practicing each movement.
Text of Book Included:
"Can you skip to the school?
Can you tiptoe down the hall?
Can you act like a pencil?
Can you stand straight and tall?
Can you open like the scissors?
Can you squiggle like the glue?
Can you glide like a crayon?
Can you fold like paper too?
Can you march to the playground?
Can you bounce like a ball?
And when the school day's over?
Can you tiptoe down the hall?"
