we've got rhythm, yes we do

{update...due to copyrights, I cannot give out the ddr powerpoints.  sorry!}

we've got rhythm, how about you???

This week in PE Miss Anderson is teaching about rhythm. She started off having them repeat simple rhythmic patterns with sticks.



Then the REAL fun began.
Dance Dance Revolution... PE style!!!
She used homemade mats and showed the class how to dance along with a PowerPoint. It started off REALLY slow, but then got too fast for me to keep up! Some of these little children have some rather impressive moves! Of course there were a few who decided they would rather make up their own moves, rather than follow along. Ha. As long as they had fun, right?

A few notes about the videos:
-I didn't realize holding the camera sideways would make it stay like this. I don't know how to rotate it, so sorry if you strain your neck. :)
-The first video's a little weird, because I had to move around the few who weren't allowed to be filmed. After this one, I just had them go to the other side of the gym while I filmed, then switched.
-As I've said before, if you are concerned about this video being on YouTube, I made it so it is unlisted - people can only view the video from this blog. It is not 100% public. People can't search for it and find it. Hope this is okay. Please contact me if you have a question/concern.
-Miss Anderson took a video of me dancing, but I refuse to post it. Ha! I am the least coordinated person on the planet. :)








This is by far our class' favorite song. It was so funny to watch them dance and sing along with JB. One boy shouted out a few times, "It's Justin Bieber, This is Justin Bieber". It was funny. I had to remind a couple of children that they were supposed to dance, not just stand there and sing. :)

Of course I can send it to you. What's your email address? Once I get it from our PE teacher, I'll send it your way. :)

I would love to get a copy of the dance power point. Your class looks like a happy place for learning.
