Moving around serves two purposes.
#1 it gives my active kids a chance to move, which they love.
#2 It gives me an immediate visual of who is with me, and who is not, which I love.
Just by watching when I start walking to see who isn't simultaneously turning with me I know who I've lost. They can try to fake it by watching the other students, but they are always just a half second behind which is a dead giveaway.
Simple right? I hope that this is something that you can find useful for your classroom.
