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. Disclaimer: You should preview any video before showing it to your students.

If you aren’t sitting in chairs/stools, tap foot on ground or stand up and step in place.
Kids should pedal a pretend personal bicycle at 2:19 where players as a group create the bike.
