Maracas are for Shaking

We started off in a circle, welcoming back our participants with some familiar songs such as Wake Up My Hands, Old MacDonald, and B-I-N-G-O. The children took turns clapping and making animal sounds, and when we were nice and warmed up we stood up for a good movement set, including The Hokey Pokey, and Shoo Fly, before ending with a super fun jam session. Some kids were very excited to get their hands on the maracas, so I reminded everyone that maracas were for shaking and we played some shaking songs to reinforce it. Maracas
