Let’s go walking along

Song in 5/4, steady beat

“Let’s go walking along, let’s go walking along,
First I follow, follow you, Then you follow follow me”


Choose children to lead the line.  Use a drum. Vary the tempo. Encourage the children to feel the beat strongly with their feet.

Imagine things encountered on the walk, or reasons for walking/marching/dancing.

Play stop and start

Everybody stops when the drum stops.  Everybody starts from where they left off when the drum restarts.
