Students then find their own space to stand in the room.
No music - Students practice the movements as teacher shows flash cards
Tip-Toe, Walk, Hop, Skip, Jump and Stop
Caution students to watch out as they move and not bump into others
With music - as music plays, teacher holds up the flash cards and students move
