In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
This is "a get your wiggles out" stretch activity in which the children mimic everything that the teacher says and does. It is a cumulative activity in which the children end up moving so many body parts at once that they can't go on and stay standing. This activity provides a fun, kinesthetic break between sedentary activities. They are also pretending to be a character that works as long and as hard as he can before saying, "Enough!"
Tell the children that you will lead a movement activity in which they will copy exactly what you say and do. To give them a practice example, you may say, "Hi my name is ______ (your name)," and wave at the same time. Repeat until they all get the idea.
Use the Leader Resource, "Hi, My Name Is Joe" Script.
