Weekly Rap
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Hap Palmer

- Identify and memorize the days of the week
- Improve motor skills and endurance
- Count from one to seven

Stand in front of your seat or spread out in open area

Learn the days of the week as you reach, run, tap, pat, stretch, bend, twist, turn and jump with the "Weekly Rap." We'll go through the days three times - on the third time get ready to speed things up!

Monday, Monday, reach and run day
Tuesday, Tuesday, tap your shoes day
Wednesday, Wednesday, stretch and bend day
Thursday, Thursday, twist and turn day
Friday, Friday, jump up high day
Saturday, Saturday, pat your body day
Sunday, Sunday, that's the one day
We can rest and do nothing at all

Now clap, clap, clap for the weekly rap
Count to seven and do it again
(Repeat first verse)

Now clap, clap, clap for the weekly rap
Count to seven and pick up speed !
(Repeat first verse with faster tempo)

Now clap, clap, clap, for the weekly rap
Count to seven and that's the end

Follow up:
- Feel your heart before you start this activity, then feel it again after doing the activity. Is it beating faster? Do you know why?
- In your own time, do the motions in order. Now try it in slow motion. Now do the opposite and show me the fastest speed you can go.
