Before each track of the music the movement will be briefly explained, e.g. tapping with fingertips.
Only do the movements when the music is playing as this heightens the expectations and anticipation of the pupils.
Adults should be looking for responses from the children.
- Showing pleasure/displeasure
- Requesting more/stop
- Listening for the pupils voices during each session.
Some pupils may prefer to the do some of the movements to the adult.
Finish by singing “Tac pac has finished”.
