Many Activity Ideas Plus a Great Parent Take Home Page

"We Have the Moves" is a great publication from Sesame Street that can be used as a single program or can used in parts to supplement other events.

I used this curriculum as the framework for a "move and groove" story time geared for 2-5 year olds. I used three of the activities: Jump the River, Magic Wand, and Balance Poses.

Jump the River was the most popular of the three. I made a "river" out of masking tape and we practiced our two-footed jumping, both forward and backwards. The kids worked really hard and were pretty sweaty after this activity. Though not stated in the .PDF, a good book to pair this activity with is "Jump, Frog, Jump" by Robert Kalan.

Magic Wand was very fun as well. I already have a supply of scarves, so we used them to stretch up high and down low. The kids really liked throwing the scarves up and catching them. We also marched with the scarves and pretended they were flags and then kites.

I used the Balance Pose activity as a cool down. The kids responded positively to the Sesame Street characters on the cards and their attention span was longer than I thought it would be, considering there are only four poses. Counting to 10 for each pose incorporated number learning.

The last two pages of the .PDF file can be printed back-to-back for a great parent take home sheet, with easy ideas to add physical activity into their everyday routines.
