Title – Hokey Pokey with Shapes
By – Debbie Haren
Subject – Math, Music
Grade Level – PreK-Kindergarten

Materials: cut out shapes with different colored felt pieces. For instances orange circles. Make enough felt shapes for every child in your class. Try to at least use the major shapes such as triangle, circle, rectangle, square and oval. Other suggestions are diamonds, semicircle and hexagons for more challenges.

Activity: Have the precut shapes of felt on the floor in front of each child. Explain to the kids that your going to teach them a new song and when they hear a certain shape they need to find the shape in their pile and hold up and do the actions in the song!!

Song: Sing to the Hokey Pokey Song

Put your circle in, put your circle out put your circle in and you shake it all about,
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what it’s all about.

Put your rectangle in your rectangle out, put your rectangle in and you shake it all about,
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what’s it’s all about.

Put your triangle in put your triangle out put your triangle in and you shake it all about,
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what’s it’s all about.

The kids love it and they really learn their shapes quickly by doing it to music!!
