Movement circles - I made a few more than can be found on the website. They were cut out and then the kids took turn drawing one circle. Everyone did the movement. Other ones i added include dance like a robot, jump like a robot, make robot sounds... It was fun!
Then I passed out robot printable masks. We did a poem I made up and each time I said "robot," they held up their robots and wiggled and jiggled them.
My robot likes to wiggle.
My robot likes to jiggle.
Boy it makes me giggle
When that robot starts to wiggle and jiggle!
Next, I got out our tape, popsicle sticks, scissors, markers, and crayons and they could cut out and decorate their masks to take home.
