Product Description
Geometric transformations such as slides, flips, and turns can be difficult to understand and remember. Using the popular Cupid Shuffle dance played at weddings, I created new lyrics to the song including all the transformation vocabulary words such as translate, reflect, and rotate. Here's how it works...

The first lesson is having students trace their footprints on bulletin paper. They cut it out and trace the translation, reflection, and rotation of their footprint. The second lesson is teaching this Transformation Shuffle song while playing the Cupid Shuffle music video. This way, the students can see the original dance and I point out to them how the footprints are making transformations. The last lesson (optional) is having the students learn the dance and choreograph hand motions that go along with the Transformation Shuffle lyrics.

The song is insanely fun! The dance is even better! Everyone has a great time and you will never have to worry about reteaching transformations for the rest of the year! My kids even performed it to the school and it was a huge hit.
