Move, Then, Stay Still
Action Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Music with Mar.

    
This song is available on Mar. Harman's
"Singing in a Different Key"

One of the things children have trouble with is body control.  Before they can learn skills like reading and math, they need to first understand their bodies.  This song focuses on developing that skill.  It invites them to move freely, then stay still and listen to what part to move next (control and awareness).  Some people had been requesting a ‘freeze’ dance and wanted me to call it that.  I didn’t because when children are just learning language (or have trouble with processing language), they can be very literal.  If they have just learned that ‘freeze’ means cold, then it could be confusing that their body was ‘freezing’ when in fact, it is just ‘staying still’.  Let go and dance!!!

Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Then, stay still. Stay still.

Move your fingers. Move your feet.
Now your whole body moves to the beat.

Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Then, stay still. Stay still.

Get your toe tapping. Tap. Tap.
Your fingers snapping. Snap. Snap.

Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Then, stay still. Stay still.

It‟s a lot of fun to move. And maybe not as much to be still.
It‟s fun to move a lot, but it‟s also fun to chill.

Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Move. Find your groove.
Then, stay still. Stay still. Stay still. Stay still.
