The Seasonal Cycle in Movement

To help my students remember the order of the seasonal cycle, we act it out with motions. 1. Winter (sleeping pose) 2. Spring (spring awake with small hands to represent buds) 3. Summer (hands up high for full leaves and then into a circle for a big sun) 4. Fall (hands fall as fingers wiggle to represent the leaves falling down) Maybe kinda kookie but the kids like it, and it works. :)


  1. I love kookie and am doing the seasons next week...gonna do it!

  2. i love any ideas that get my first graders moving! thanks for sharing! my kids will love this! :)
