Used it with K-6
I teach in an urban district, and I use both Move It routines with all my classes. The ones with the props are fun for the older kids, and with all of the students. Don't show the DVD to your class, or they may balk. It's the enthusiasm, expression, and fun that you bring to movement that will catch your students' attention.
suitable for younger students
I had purchased this with the intent of using with my fifth grade classes, but there is no way that my fifth grade boys would do this. Disappointing, because there is a need for interesting, creative movement for "classical" music for older students.
