Music is the "dessert" of the curriculum. If you're not singing every day, you're missing a little magic. In August, 2015, I gave away a free file with songs that will be perfect for your new school year. You'll find a song to start your day, end your day, build a classroom family, learn the days of the week, letters, count, wiggle, and more. Music is perfect for "prior learning" for your young children, and it can be a good review for your older students.

Here's a link where you can download the file with 15 songs: 


Rise and Shine to start each day.

The Rules Rap to encourage positive behavior. 

Days of the Week for a calendar song.

Over in the Meadow to connect numbers and sets.

Twelve Days of School to count.

Nursery Rhyme Rap for phonological awareness.

Alphardy for alphabet knowledge and phonics.

Five Senses for science.

The Cool Bear Hunt for sequencing.

Silly Willy for a brain break.

The Wheels on the Bus for fun.

I Like to Come to School for a positive attitude.

Super Star Chant for creating a classroom community.

Gray Squirrel just because it's a sweet song I remember singing with my children.

It's Time to Say Good-Bye to send them out the door on a positive note.

You'll also find links for books you can download to go with the songs.
