Music Teachers:

Perfect to integrate literacy, music and movement.

It's the perfect song for Kindergarten and First Grade Programs too.

Movement Activity: The western style accompaniment has them galloping around the room like happy horses.

The students love to pat their knees on "chaps" and point to their heads on "hat" and "howl to the moon" like a Coyote!

Brain Break Activity

I'ts also a great song for Activity Time-galloping around the circle or taking turns galloping inside the circle. When the music stops the "gallopers" tap another student and trade places. They absolutely love it!
