We have been having a great time this year dancing to a variety of dance videos. One of our favourites is this one from Go Noodle! The Go Noodle website has quite a few good brain break videos!
We can’t keep our bodies still when this music is on!
Sometimes our buddy class come by and joins us! Here we are dancing to the YMCA!
You can find a few more on our WIKI site! Kinderchat created a Symbaloo of the best Just Dance Kids videos. They are easy to find in this format. Take a look! Just scroll down the page on our WIKI until you reach the Dance Videos and click on the icons. It will take you to the Kinderchat Symbaloo site.
Try the videos! I bet you won’t be able to keep still!
Today was the last day in session this year and so to celebrate we did our favourite subject….
We did one new experiment and then repeated two of our favourite old ones.
There are two things that I have always wanted to do but have been successful at yet…
I can’t whistle very well (actually, I can’t whistle at all) and I haven’t been able to blow up a balloon.
But I do know how to get science to blow up a balloon!
I do love experiments that use vinegar and baking soda! Good old kitchen ingredients!
The instructions are in your child’s science duotang. One rainy day this summer when you are looking for some fun give it a try!
We also repeated the Don’t Spill experiment. It is fun to watch their faces when the piece of paper holds up the water in the upside down cup for a while. I think the record this morning was just a little over half an hour before the paper fell down and the water splashed out!
We also did the experiment we call High and Dry! We put some kleenex in the bottom of a cup, turn the cup over and put it in a tub of water. The kleenex stays dry. Do you know why?
I promised that I would post the links for Dance Mix Two. We have had a great time dancing to some of the songs on this mix. We haven’t done them all yet!
I have also add the Disney Dance Mix. We haven’t had a chance to do any of these yet!
You can find the links on our class WIKI page.
I am trying to figure out which one is my favourite…. What’s yours?
I would like to thank Kinderchat for compiling all these great dance videos. Aren’t they great?
So when the weather is not so nice this summer you have two things you can do! Check out the science experiments and DANCE!
Have a great summer!
