CP2.3: Adopt roles and collaborate with others in role within dramatic contexts, using community as inspiration (e.g., contexts inspired by local stories and songs, photographs of local people and places, or events from real or fictional communities).


Math: (i) Analyze a sequence of numbers in order to describe the sequence in terms of a skip counting strategy (by 2s, 5s, or 10s as well as forward and backward) and extend the sequence using the pattern.

Art: (b) Adopt roles in dramatic situations and interact appropriately with others in roles drawing on imagination and own understanding of the context (e.g., community).

Student Engagement/Classroom Management Strategies:

Station 4

Dance with the students and show them how to do some of the movements if needed:

- This is Halloween Just Dance (3 min)


- Ghostbusters Just Dane (4 min)


- Calling all the Monsters Just Dance (3 min)


- Frozen Let it Go Just Dance (4 min)


- YMCA Just Dance


- Baby Shark



What went well? The students all loved the all of the activities

What didn’t? The teacher never saw us explain the stations and how they were going to work at the beginning, which was too bad because I thought it went really well and I felt like a teacher for the very first time!

What would you go back and change? 10 min was a bit long for some students for the just dance. Maybe 8 min each instead!

I'd love to hear your feedback!
