The 4th of July is nearly here.  Get out some “squirlies” and get your students in a patriotic frame of mind at the same time with this classic tune.  Need the music?  Check out this great version of Yankee Doodle you can download right now from Amazon.


Yankee Doodle went to town, riding on a pony, 
(hold hands in front of you as if holding reins, and bounce up and down)

Stuck a feather in his cap, and called it macaroni.
(motion putting on hat and sticking in feather)

Yankee Doodle keep it up, Yankee Doodle Dandy,
Mind the music and the step and with the girls be handy!
(skip in a circle around the room)
