Stand By Me: Reminder & Performance

Follow along beats

Instructions

1. Last week you came up with sounds for CIRCLE, CROSS and TRIANGLE. Have another go at this

2. Come up with sounds for CROSS and SQAURE too.

Instructions

1. Follow the skeleton as it dances on the symbols and first clap or tap on every sign. When the sign rolls down the hill, make as many sounds as you can!

 

2. Decide on 4 different sounds for the 4 symbols – e.g. Circle = stamp, Cross = clap, Gear = chest, Triangle = knees/legs

 

3. If you're in class, split into 4 groups and take a symbol each, or 2 groups and take 2 symbols each.

Kitchen Band / Classroom Band

If you still want to give this a go!

Instructions

Make sure you have asked permission before doing this. You will need help from your family too.

You can download your sheets below.
