Hokey Pokey On A Harried Day

To teach the Kinders, who do not speak English, body parts, I taught them how to do the Hokey Pokey today. They were squealing  in utter delight, trying to sing and put the correct body part forward while also learning to distinguish their right from left! They were having so much fun bumping into one another, stepping on toes, and flailing arms that  their laughter alone gave me so much amusement.

I did, however, learn something from this lesson: I can’t do the ” . . . turn yourself around” part without feeling nauseated!

  1. The Hokey Pokey is the best thing in the world. I used to do it when I taught in Japan. But, more powerfully, when my high school drama teacher retired, a room full of adults (all who had been influenced by her work) stood up and did the Hokey Pokey in her owner. It was awesome.


    PS, just turn yourself around in slow motion. 😉
