- Teach the song by rote
- Have students move to various verses using the motion described by the verse (hopping, flying, walking, bouncing, skipping)
- Create new motions that might suggest the character involved in a different way
- Finally, I have masks that I purchased at Michael's and painted to use with this song.
- I line students up by character and with their mask in one hand they move around our predetermined pathway through the room somewhat parade like.
