1) Practice Along Song version: This is the same version of the song that accompanies the Hello Body Video. Compared to the video the song format enabling children to take a more active role by singing and moving during presentation. It also allows adult/peer leaders to model movements and monitor progress in a more interactive format. Overall the songs are intended to encourage more adult and peer interaction as opposed to screen time.
2) Fill in the Blank version: This version is not only good for supporting memorization of key lyrics/phrases, it is also designed to support generalization of skills. After children have established a solid understanding of the original song version the Fill-in-the-Blank version allows for lyric modification and concept expansion (see Generalization Strategies for more details).
3) The Background Music track: This track is an instrumental version of the Hello Body Song that can be used to prompt/reinforce somatic awareness and self regulation (e.g. relaxation) during other activities. For example play it quietly during quiet work times, rest and relaxation, or other activities that would benefit from increased somatic awareness.
4) Extended Response Time version: This tracks gives you twice the amount of response time between instructional prompts. This is a good version for children who require more processing time or prompting from an adult. It’s also useful if you want to provide more detailed instruction to children following sung prompts.
These songs are designed to be used with other components of the Hello Body Module and are also included in the complete Hello Body Module.
