When I saw the new The Learning Station song "Haunted House", which is a fun freeze dance song I just KNEW I had to share it with my readers. Brain breaks are perfect to give your students a few minutes break from work. Us adults can only concentrate on something for about 30 minutes from what I have read. Children it is far less than that. So break up their work with a quick brain break! I thought this song would be great with Halloween approaching!
The Learning Station has two different versions of videos for the song. The first one is an animation video with the words printed on the screen. This makes it perfect for ELL/ESOL learners as well as children just learning to read! Children will love the graphics and the characters are done in a way that they are not scary looking!
The second version of the song has two children and Don Monopoli doing the actions for the brain break. The background shows them going through the haunted house with the various Halloween characters.
Which video for "Haunted House" is your favorite? Let me know in the comments. You can purchase the actual song on CD Baby or ITUNES.
Thanks for hoppin' by Hopkins' Hoppin' Happenings! Keep on smiling!
