Importance of Activity:

  • In this activity, you and your child will use your imaginations and creativity to make a dance to the “Raise Your Hand and Get Your Turn” song. Preparing a paper hand, listening to the song, and moving and dancing to the music will help your child remember to use appropriate behaviors when interacting with others. Working together will strengthen your parent-child bond.

  • is able to recognize, recreate, and make patterns
  • recognizes own skills and accomplishments and takes pleasure in performing them
  • strengthen parent-child relationship
  • uses appropriate behaviors

Suggested Dialogue:

  • When you are at school, what do you do if you want to say something during group time?
  • How does it make you feel when someone interrupts you when you are talking?
  • If I am having a conversation with someone else, what could you say to get my attention and tell me something? (excuse me)
  • We are going to make a dance to the “Raise Your Hand and Get Your Turn” song together!
  • Dancing is a form of exercise. It is good for your body!

Instructions:

  1. Sing the song, “Raise Your Hand and Get Your Turn” with your child.
  2. Place the mat in the play area.
  3. Arrange the supplies in front of your child.
  4. Have the child trace his/her hand on a piece of paper. Together, cut out the paper hand and have the child decorate it. Attach the stick onto the back of the paper for the child to hold. Make one for yourself too!
  5. Find an open and safe place where you can dance (inside or outside) together.
  6. After you listen to the song again say, “When you are at school, what do you do if you want to say something during group time?” Use the suggested dialogue to talk about when it is the appropriate time to raise your hand.
  1. Introduce your child to other ways of getting someone’s attention in a polite way, such as saying “Excuse me.”
  2. Ask your child how they feel when someone interrupts them.
  3. Now it is time to make a dance! Within the song, it says “Raise your hand” about 10 times. Work together with your child to come up with a movement using the paper hand each time the song says “Raise your hand.”
  4. Practice this movement a few times and then dance to the music together.
  5. End the activity by singing the song, “Raise Your Hand and Get Your Turn” again with your child and folding the mat.
