Movie Clip Monday - Compass Slide

My students were learning about cardinal directions in social studies recently.  I labeled the room with north, east, south, and west.  Then we practiced by dancing to the Compass Slide.  This video is just the song.  There aren't any lyrics or anything, but it is still good.  My students loved it!

After dancing to this, one student came up to me and asked if we could play Simon Says.  So then we played Simon Says using directions such as:
-point your toes east
-turn your body west
-look at the north
-point east and west

They loved it and had so much fun learning about cardinal directions!

  1. I can see why your kids liked the video. It gets them moving and interacting. I got the idea of my students writing their own reader's theater scripts from their favorite books from (teacher resources...featured teachers). This teacher had very positive results and I think it would be a great writing extension to go along w/ Movie Clip Mondays, instead of favorite books.
