More Ideas for "Freeze" (from Music K-8, Vol. 14, No. 2). I use this song in my 7th and 8th grade MH (multi-handicapped) class. They absolutely love it! It benefits them by getting them moving (some of them are not very mobile) and gets them singing (some of them are not very verbal).

Halloween movement idea: Instruct students to make their scariest "monster" pose when they hear "Freeze!"

Instrumental performance idea: After students are familiar and comfortable with the full performance track, I like to mix it up a bit and play the instrumental performance track. Students have to listen for the musical cues to know when to "Freeze!"
