Seventh Inning Stretch
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
This is truly a multipurpose piece. It's a movement song, it's very easy, it could be an audience participation song, it's seasonal, it crosses the curriculum to sports (which could in turn cross further into character via teamwork and good sportsmanship), and it features a phat jazz band, which is always a good tie-in to your music studies. It's essentially just a swinging boogie woogie that uses mostly three basic chords, so your young guitar students can strum along, too!
Use the tune as a break in the action that allows students to stand up and stretch. You could use this in your own class, or encourage classroom teachers to use it to give students a breather while studying or taking tests. It would also be a fun piece to do in almost any performance. (from Music K-8, Vol. 19, No. 4)
