Do you dread creating choreography, especially for patriotic music? I have created videos of simple choreography to three popular patriotic songs. Use these moves for assemblies, patriotic celebrations and mini-programs, All the moves are small and simple, and they only use hand motions, so you can use these moves on the risers for a quick program, too. These moves are great for Pre-K up to 4th grade, depending on your students. Once you have these videos, you can use them for your sub to learn the moves in a snap!
Songs included are: “America (My Country 'Tis of Thee),” “You're a Grand Old Flag" and “America, the Beautiful.” For each song, I have created a short video to show you the choreography.
Please note: there is no music included due to copyright laws. In the videos, I have spoken the lyrics in rhythm while doing the moves. I used my iPhone to create the videos, so they are made mainly for the teachers to learn the moves. However, I do repeat the moves twice and speak like I am talking to my students, so you can show them to your kids if you would like. The videos are each a QuickTime Movie (.MOV) file saved in HD 720p.
I use recordings from my Macmillan/McGraw-Hill texts and YouTube.
In each song, I only do the most popular verse and chorus, so this is ideal for elementary students.
