This activity takes place during the entire song of Jingle Bells. There are different movements to do during different segments of the song. Those are explained next.

Introduction portion of the song: have the students shake the streamer.

"Dashing" part of the song: Step and close left 4x while circling streamer counterclockwise 4x (1/2 time)

"O’er" part of the song: stir the pot 8x (pretend you are stirring a pot with a spoon)

"Bells on" part of the song: Step close right 4x while circling streamer clockwise 4x (1/2 time)

"Oh what fun" part of the song: stir the pot again 8x

Chorus: Jingle Bells: Circle streamer overhead 4x slowly (Halo) (1/2 time)

"Oh what fun" part of song: Cross the streamer in front 4x (1/2 time)

Repeat chorus a second time

Start again from the beginning


Have students develop their own routine after teaching the number of beats in the song. (32 beats in the verses and 32 in the chorus).

Have students write and teach their own pattern to other students.
