Stand up! Sit Down!

To help the kids practice standing up and sitting down we played a quick and simple game.

I had them sit in their chairs with their eyes closed and when the pianist played a note, or the beginning of a song, they would open their eyes and stand up! And we’d see who was fastest 🙂

After they had that down, I changed the rules. Now they would close their eyes and when the piano played they would open their eyes and look at me. Then I would tell everyone to stand up together.

If I had more time it would have been really fun to let the kids take turns deciding when to cue the piano, and being in charge of when to stand up.

But, you can only do so much in four minutes!
