high school student who speaks the same language, as possible. This will help the ELL children understand the words to the songs and the movements to the songs.
Shy Child:Shy children will not be placed in the front row during the
performance. They will be encouraged to sing; however, they know they will never be pushed or pressured to do so. If they feel comfortable, they will sing and perform the movements to the songs.
Shorter Child:Shorter children will be placed in the front of
the group so they are able to see the leader’s movements.
Over-Active Child:This child will be placed on the end of the row while performing so that he has more space to move around and perform his movements to the songs
without interrupting the other students.
