When I needed to shake it up for myself or my K-5 students, I had “Sing and Move Day.” I alternated sit-down SINGING videos with get up and MOVE videos. It was a great break from the routine and I found that the kids and I both loved (and needed) it.
Pick and choose the videos that are most appropriate for your students.

Kids should pedal a pretend personal bicycle at 2:19 where players as a group create the bike.
