Movin' and Groovin'

Help everyone learn and perform the movements of this little rhyme.

Move 'em up, move 'em down
   [move fingers up, then down]
Shake both hands all around
   [shake hands in air]
Twist, then bend, from side to side
   [twist torso, then bend left, then right]
Show us how you can glide
   [move feet over floor as if gliding]
Now put your hands on your hips
   [put hands on hips]
Make a big smile with your lips!
   [children smile]
