I have used this music for many students int he past 10 years. I especially like to use it for students with motor skills difficulties. You hear the music and the instructions and then it is recorded without the instructions so that you can perform the activitiy as part of an assembly at school or perhaps at a parents night and have the instructions blarring. Special needs/EMH students REALLY enjoy the involvment and have a sense of belonging and peer-ship! The music sounds up to date and the instructions are easy to follow and not presented too quickly. There are many repetitions and the students are able to follow the simple activities. There is a leaflet included to show you the moves when the movement is not clear. This adds nicely to any PE program when the gym is not available and can be intergrated into your Music/Movement units as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars pass the beanbag, please... July 21, 2006
By Emily
Format:Audio CD
When I started teaching preschool in 1992, I had this on record. It is great that it is on CD now. I can't say that I use all of the songs, but I have literally worn out "Pass the Beanbag". I can remember numerous days when the playground was wet, too hot, or the kids where just acting wild- when I would put this song on.

"Pass the Beanbag" is kind of like Hot Potato. Any size group of children sit in a circle on the floor. When the music stops, the person holding the bean bag has won the game. I have had MARATHON listens to "Pass the Bean Bag, until EVERYONE in the class has won. It can really help kill time when you are waiting for kids to be picked up at the end of the day - an there isn't anything to clean up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and Easy Movement and Song April 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a new Preschool teacher and I'm not too excited about Music and Movement. This CD is excellant for someone like me. The songs are fun and give easy directions for movement. I made bean bags to go with it. This CD teaches Music, Movement, Coordination, Colors and Math. It's not too bad to listen to either!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Kindergarten June 10, 2007
By Amy_B
Format:Audio CD
I teach kindergarten and use this CD every week. My students love Pass the Beanbag & Beanbag Catch. Both songs work great for students with all ability levels. The Beanbag Catch song us a good way for students to have to listen and control their beanbags becasue they are throwing (actually tossing) the beanbag to a partner. Beanbag parade is also another great song. My students always like to take turns being the leader and march around the classroom. The singing is very cheesey but the students love it so much that I don't notice it anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love this CD January 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD after hearing it in my 3 yr olds class. He just loves it. The bean bag activities encourage movement and teach body parts and cordination. He also askes for the bean bag CD whenever we are in the car, and does the activities while sitting in his car seat.

I previously worked at a school that had this CD in the toddler class. This is excellent for motor skills, coordination, math, and language. The best thing is that the little ones love it!

Kimbo Educational is a premiere producer of lively CD music for children specifically designed, performed, and recorded so as to help them grow and develop both physically and mentally. Perfect for families, preschools, kindergartens, and community libraries, is a new and outstanding music CD for young children which is dedicated to providing a musical inspiration and accompaniment for a physical activity program that incorporates the use of a bean bag is "Bean Bag: Activities & Coordination Skills" (KIM 7055) by dance education and special education expert Georginiana Stewart is composed of a series of games, dances, and activities that develop rhythm, coordination, listening skills, and language in an easy, safe, fun, self-instructive format that children can accomplish on their own. The first seven pieces (Who's Got the Bean Bag?; Make Friends with a Bean Bag; Bean Bag Rock; How Many Wats?; Bean Bag Catch; Pass the Bean Bag; and Bean Bag Parade) include both vocals and instrumentals; while the last seven pieces (repeating the same songs as the first seven tunes) are instrumental only. Two more highly recommended activities oriented CDs for children from Kimbo Educational are: "Musical Scarves & Activities" (KIM 9167) and "Circle Time Activities: Theme-Based and Transition Activities" (KIM 9173)

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice activity, but little song variety April 1, 2009
By J. Fry
Format:Audio CD
This CD is fine for what it is. Passing the beanbag is a fun activity - especially for special needs children, but this is pretty much a one note song. Don't look for alot of creative ideas for games or activities to do with beanbags. Also, since half of the CD is instrumental versions of the same songs there is not much material here. I was hoping for alot more.
