Get out your egg shakers and shake, shake, shake along to this song! “Shake, Shake, Shake Along” specifically targets playing loudly, softly, down low, and up high. At the end of the song, let’s all work together to clean up the shakers and transition to the next activity.
“Shake, Shake, Shake Along” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
- Increase directional awareness
- Increase ability to follow clearly stated directions
- Improve fine and gross motor skills
- Increase social interaction
- Improve cooperative play
Consider writing another verse to include how each child would like to play his or her egg shakers. See how creative they can be!
