About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Music Activity Thursday

On Thursdays we go to playgroup so we don't do craftivities. However, we are going to start doing activities there. The moms are going to be rotating different topics and I was asked to do activities centered around music. So... I thought we'd have Music Activity Thursdays here too.

Today is something simple and will probably only take 5-10 minutes.
Here's the song (you probably all know it):



Head, Shoulders, Knees And Toes
Tune of: "London Bridges"
Author: Unknown

Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.
Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
And eyes, ears, mouth and nose.

Ankles, elbows, feet and seat,
Feet and seat, feet and seat,
Ankles, elbows, feet and seat,
And hair, hips, chin and cheeks.

Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.
Ankles, elbows, feet and seat,
And eyes, ears, mouth and nose.

Activity: Talk about the different body parts. If the child is younger, discuss what the different body parts are called. If the child is older then talk about what the function of that body part is. My four year old LOVES learning how everything works. Have fun and get creative. If you have any ideas on how to expound on this topic then please post them in the comments. I'm interested to hear what ideas you may have.
