Name of Activity:
Who Let The Dogs Out
Purpose of Activity:To develop skills in directionality and spatial relations in a fun way. This activity also provides vestibular stimulation for students.
Suggested Grade Level:K-12
Description of Idea
As the chorus "Who let the dogs out!" is sung, students turn around and rotate a forearm in a circle. As the verse begin, everyone walks (or pushes wheelchair) forward 4 steps and then back 4 steps. Repeat.
Then everyone faces the right and walks (or pushes wheelchair) in large circle until the chorus begins again. Repeat turning around and rotating forearm while singing.
To make the skill a little more challenging, vary the direction the students are to turn or walk around the circle, which arm to wave, etc.
Adaptations for Students with Disabilities:
While working on left and right concepts, use cues such as different color gloves on hands (ex. red for right, blue for left).
