Little Sally Walker

Mother May I, Simon Says, Red Light/Green Light.  These are the playground games I remember from grade school.  And what was that jump rope game involving a song about robbers?  I don't remember at the moment.  Anyhow, I had no idea what I was missing until watching my students play games with a beat, funky lyrics, and dance such as "Little Sally Walker" and "Down by the River."  This is how we do it on the east side, the hood, when we don't want to be out in 100+ heat on the last day of school...

P.S.  I was supposed to be "teaching with rigor" right up until the last moment of school.  Seriously?  Okay, so the above video was a differentiated lesson on poetry using the multiple intelligences.  So there.
