Sleeping Beauty and Snow White Interactive Songs
There is a lovely German circle game song about Sleeping Beauty I learned years ago. The traditional presentation of the game involves the children forming a circle, singing the song and doing some movement. One school presented a wonderful version of both of these songs and stories. Pass these ideas on to child cares and teachers or incorporate these variations into your programs.
