Even and Odd and the Gummy Bear Dance???

So I finally completed the famous even and odd street with my class this year. I know everyone has seen this but just in case you haven't you have to click here to get the template for free from The Teacher Wife. Here is a picture of how ours turned out:

Now I have a question for all of you. Have you heard or seen the gummy bear dance? We take a lot of tests on Fridays and yesterday I remembered that I had pinned some brain breaks on Pintrest. (Don't you love that you pin so much you forget about half of it)? Well I pulled this gummy bear dance up expecting it to be too silly for 2nd grade and oh my word they loved it. Remember when you used to go to dances when you were younger and when a certain song came on everyone got up and did the moves to it? Well, that is what it was like in my class on Friday. I press play and the next thing I know all of my kids are standing at the front of the room in a big group doing these moves to this I'm a Gummy Bear song. It was cracking me up. Just curious if it is a Tennessee thing.
Click on the picture to be taken to the video. Try playing it for your class if you haven't already and see what happens. Maybe I'm just getting old and am not up on what's hip any more : )
