I visited Ryan’s kindergarten class at Congregation M’kor Shalom yesterday and thought this was a perfect KIDFUN idea that her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Rothman, was playing. She said — “Let’s all sing our Good morning song,” but she started with this game. The students had to follow her, make the same motions she made. What a tease! First Mrs. Rothman tapped her legs — they followed, but then she quickly raised her hands — they followed her again. Then, with a big laugh, she clapped her hands and I think they all paid great attention because everyone followed along.
I bet your kids would like to be the leader of this “Follow Me!” game — try it in the car or when your stuck inside on a rainy day … even outdoors when you’re hanging out!
