Come Out of the Barn

Come out of the barn

One of my many reasons why I love to use music in the classroom is because it’s a great way for kids to get used to follow directions. The funny thing is, they’d never think of it this way!

Why? Because they are having fun! Aww, just the way we want it.

“Come Out of the Barn” is such a fun song because kids get to crawl around the room and not get in trouble! I find they are so excited about this freedom that they are actually extra well behaved!

LEARNING OUTCOMES: Cross-lateral movement, listening to directions, pretend play, rhyming and more!

WHAT TO DO: Tell the children that they are going to pretend to be mice. They can crawl out into the field (the classroom), but be ready to come back to the barn (the circle time area) as soon as the song tells them. Turn on the music and get down on the ground with your little mice!
