This resource is great for that "I need to get a musical ready and don't have time to be creative" moment! Your kids will love it, and your voice can have a break! This would be best for advanced 2nd graders through 6th grade. You will need your own recording of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" and cups but everything else is provided!
Included in this resource is:
1. 10-minute, step-by-step video for this cup game (similar to the "Cup Song"). The ten minutes does not include the two planned pauses for practicing and any other moments you need to pause and coach students who are struggling. Once you download this video, you do not need internet access (great for subs* that can't get online and random internet issues).
2. Printable instructions (makes it great for you AND for a sub*)
3. Printable moves written out so you can pause the video and coach the class. I made large and small print versions, so you can also print them out for your students without wasting a ton of paper.
This lesson will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the kids' abilities and how much coaching and practicing you do.
*This will only work for a sub who has musical abilities, because they will have to be able to identify beats and the main theme of the music.
Please contact me if you see a reason to give less than an A+ rating so I can improve the resource. I hope this will help you out during this stressful time of year!
