A good song for fast and slow is a transportation song, where the kids can imagine – and act out – the movement as they sing. For instance, for a train song, imagine the train begins slowly, gets going quickly, and then slows down and stops.

Hint: Before moving, to make for smooth transitions, have kids practice by keeping the beat while patsching in place. You keep the steady beat by playing a drum or other unpitched percussion that can be heard over their marching once they start moving.
