Rhymes for walking in line

I just came across these "Walking in line" rhymes in my files. Maybe someone will be able to use them.


-----------------------
Zip it
Lock it
Put it in your pocket
Tme for walking
No more talking!


(The kids zip their mouths, lock it, and pretend to put the key in their pocket.)

-------------------
When my hands are at my side,
And I'm lined up straight and tall...
mouth is shut,
eyes look ahead,
THEN I'm ready for the hall!

-------------------
My eyes are looking forward (students put their eyes forward)
I'm standing straight and tall (students circle their arms so they are standing straight and tall)
I put my finger on my lip/I put my arms at my sides/I put my hands behind my back (whichever you prefer, students model)
I'm ready for the hall

Great ideas...I've used some. Linderbug, thanks for some new ideas for me! I have used the following song (tune of Are you sleeping?)
Time for walking,
Not for talking,
Time to go, time to go,
Time to be quiet, Time to be quiet,
Shhh, shhh, shh, shhh, shh, shh

Works well for me!

Too juvenile?

Are these too juvenile for third graders? They seem like a great idea to me, but I can see how some third graders could be thinking, "This is so kindergarten!" What do you all think?

They may respond to
Zip it, Lock it, put it in your pocket!

I've also done the :Put a strawberry in it (they then pretend to put a strawberry in their mouths and they can't talk) You could substitue something else for strawberry....like marshmallow, elbow(yeah, they'll actually try to do it, but then they calm down),etc....

I used to use these when I taught K and 1 and I found out it's very important to pay attention to HOW you say the rhymes.

I would really wind my kids up! (Who knew that it probably wasn't a good idea to "rap" the rhymes! lol)

My 2nd graders responded VERY well to it. It truly made a difference in the hallway and they would comment if we didn't do it!

Thanks for all the great line up poems. I'm going to do exactly the same and put them on index cards on a ring by my door. Where would I be without all of your wonderful ideas?

Our K teacher has her students "blow bubbles." They puff out their cheeks and slowly let out air as they walk down the hallways. I visited a school in Omaha where everyone and I mean everyone has their arms crossed as they walk down the hall. I was talking with a group of people to the assistant principal and he crossed his arms as a class of students walked by him. Even the custodian crossed his arms as a group walked by. It's their hallway rule K-5. It was amazing to see.

I use (tune farmer in the dell)this for first grade:
Our hands are to our sides
We're standing nice and tall
Our lips are very quiet
And we're ready for the hall.

Our K teacher says "lips and hips" and their right finger goes in front of their lips and their left hand goes on their hip. They are so adorable.

I made up a chant. It goes back and forth. I ask the questions first and the children answer. It goes like this:

Me: Feet?
Kids: Together
Me: Back?
Kids: Straight
Me: Tummy?
Kids: In
Me: Arms?
Kids: Behind your back or in a quiet sign
Me:Face?
Kids: Forward
Me: Eyes?
Kids: Front
Me: Mouth?
Kids: Closed!

It has worked amazingly for me. The kids love it!!! A lot of my teachers at my school have since used it too. I eventually by Novemberish...pass off my part of the chant to the student classroom job "teacher assistant" and they say it. I think that they think that is the best part!

Clip to ScrapBook #16

1-2 buckle my shoe
3-4 shut the door
5-6 pick up sticks
7-8 lay them straight
9-10 thats the end

on the one two the kids feet come together so that they are forward
3-4 they "shut" their mouths by making the locking of their lips with their finger
5-6 their arms go up around waist high and they come down at their sides
7-8 they make sure their own body is in line with everyone else
9-10 their hands go behind their back and the put a bubble in their mouth.

Thank you for posting the "line" rhymes. I will definitely be able to use these with my students this year.

Our K teachers use "bubbles and bunny tails," which means they expand their cheeks to make a bubble, and put their hands together behind their backs to make a bunny tail. They respond well to this!

Every line has a leader
It has a caboose
It stays real straight
and it stays real loose
Don't push, don't shove
just stay in line
and we'll walk and we'll walk
and we'll walk in our line

This is kind of a chant sounding one, goes really fast and they love it. Even Third graders

with my pre-k kids we did "put a bubble in it" and they held a "bubble" or air in their mouth and if they talked the bubble "popped". So I would say put a bubble in it and make sure it doesn't pop!
