Product Description
RHYTHM STICK FUN with a GROUP GAME, favorite SONG, and CRAFT ACTIVITY!

TELL A STORY with your Rhythm Sticks!

“We Are Sailing!” is one of those crowd-pleasing songs that works great in a kid-friendly version with rhythm sticks! This activity packet adds some new lyrics and turns this song into an active group game with a ‘steady beat’!

Your kids will make a simple Sailing Ship Craft to use as a ‘rhythm stick topper’, using the provided template. Both color and b/w templates are offered; choose the one that best suits your needs.

Then you are ready for a group game that sends those sailing ships all around your room-- on an ocean voyage that encounters wind, rain, thunder, dolphins, and even sharks!

The rhythm sticks will “tell the story” with a different ‘beat’ or ‘move’ for each of the 10 verses of the song, until those kid-powered sailing ships are once again tied up and moored at the docks!

This Activity Packet includes:

~ Complete lyrics for a game-ready version of the familiar “We Are Sailing!” song.

~ Simple song notes, along with instructions for a free phone app called “Real Piano” that uses a labeled keyboard for ‘picking out’ easy song tunes like this one, using their own labeled keyboard. No musical skills are needed!

~ Very specific directions for playing the game with your group.

~ Templates for the kids to cut out and make into Sailing Ship Rhythm Stick Toppers.

This game uses humor, rhyming, and repetitive language to ‘focus’ your kids and keep them involved in the activity.

I use this game with my Pre-K – 1st classes, my ESL/ELL kids, and my Speech and Special Education groups. Any kids who benefit from whole-body learning will have fun with this group game!
