Do you dread creating choreography, especially when you’re trying to get ready for a program? Or what about making an engaging sub lesson for a non-music sub when you or your child is sick? Or maybe you need something fun that will give your voice a rest and get your students ready for your Black History Month celebration!

I have created a choreography video lesson that will keep your students engaged! All you have to do is print a couple pages, provide the recording of “What a Wonderful World” and push play!

Included in this resource are:

1. Instruction page that tells you (or your sub) exactly what to do in the lesson (PDF),

2. The choreography with lyrics (PDF),

3. A glossary of the moves described in detail (PDF),

4. A 14+ minute video that you play for your students. It goes through each move separately and gives time to practice each move. I also provide a private youtube link in case you would rather give that to your sub.

5. A 2+ minute video in which I speak the words in rhythm to rehearse the continuity of moves for the entire song.

Use these moves for assemblies, celebrations and programs, All the moves are small and simple, and they use mainly hand motions, so you can use these moves on the risers. These moves are great for Pre-K up to 5th grade, depending on your students. Once you have this resource, you can use it for your sub!

Please note: there is no music included due to copyright laws. In the video, I have spoken the lyrics in rhythm while doing the moves. I used my iPhone to create the videos, so the videos are a little dark, but you can clearly see everything. Click here for "What a Wonderful World" Choreography Video Lesson PREVIEW. The videos are each a QuickTime Movie (.MOV) file saved in HD 720p.

I recommend using recordings from your textbook, or your music library.
