I do a parachute unit once a year with my younger grades and use the song from the '60s called "Sugar Shack." It has easily recognizable eight-beat phrases that, as we count, we...
go under and sit on the chute,
hold it there,
hold to the floor,
do it all over again.
It looks like a little "sugar shack" when we are holding and sitting under the parachute counting. I love to use this to reinforce counting!
