In second grade, one of the things we learn about is folk dancing. Folk dances help students improve body awareness and coordination, connect movement to preparatory breath and singing, and refine beat competence. It also creates an environment of fun 
and promotes teamwork with classmates. Our second graders just created their own 
folk dances! It took us a few weeks to learn all of the moves (about 12 of them), and 
then students got into small groups and picked which moves they wanted to include in their folk dance.
