Stars & stripes (for 4th of July)

This is a Warmup pattern from (pattern 11833)

A patriotic way to warm-up your class with the 4th of July approaching.

"Star arms" - arms start down by sides and raise up overhead until hands touch, then back down to sides

I taught each move then explained what they represented:
walk up and back = flagpole
box step = flag shape
shuffle = stripes on the flag
V with Star arms = stars
Then I called it as follows: give me the flagpole, box, stripes, stars

***1 class had trouble doing the box step, so I modified it:
walk (8 counts)
shuffle right/left 2X (16 counts)
2 V-steps with star arms (8 counts)

Hope this helps, I use this site regularly and appreciate ALL of your ideas! Cris
