      Hi, Rachel! There is a popular song called "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" that you may want to consider using. It teaches some parts of the body including the head, shoulders, knees, toes, eyes, ears, mouth, and nose. Usually when you sing the song, you touch the part of the body that you are singing about so it is also a way to get kids active. There are many different versions online like this one on youtube: Of course once you have learned the song you can sing it without music, it is especially fun to increase the rhythm with the kids so that they're singing and moving faster and faster. I hope that helps!
