Move your hands to the beat of this song.
Grab something and play along. Move your hands!
C’mon everybody get in the groove.
Listen to the music and make your move. Move your hands!
This song can be used in conjunction with range of motion exercises (guided by a trained adult) or as a strategy to increase the student’s purposeful hand use or cause & effect awareness.
To encourage motor participation and cause & effect, engage the student in play with a music instrument or other sound-making item that is accessible for his or her motor abilities. Good instrument choices include adapted shakers or bells with Velcro® or elastic cuffs, wind chimes, or an instrument that has a specialized mount. See the back cover of the booklet (included) for instrument resources.
