Floating Down the River - Singing Game
Two in the middle and you jump, jump Josie...
Floating Down the River, a traditional American folksong, is also known as “Jump, Jump, Josie”. It is a wonderful song for exploring tempo with young children as it alternates between the gentle flowing ‘A’ section and the fast, driving ‘B’ section. It provides a good opportunity for children to explore these concepts through movement.
This package contains two recordings of the song – one that uses numbers and a version for using as a parachute game that features colors. This version can also be used for dancing with colored chiffon scarves or ribbons. Teaching notes and game directions included.
