Best K Songs
What are some of your all time favorite learning and movement songs for K? I'm looking for some new ideas to try next year. Thanks! :)

class favorites
My ipod is at school but the songs that we do over and over are: Alphardy (dr. jean),
Bean Bag Alphabet Rag (got on itunes), and Tooty Ta (dr. jean). If you go to the itunes store and search for movement/kindergarten songs, you'll find a lot. I spent a lot of time in the summer looking for good ones. I'll add more when I have my ipod handy...

Oldies but Goodies
My students love Down By the Bay. I use it to teach rhymes by having students create their own silly rhymes in addition to the usuals.

Also sing that one to introduce money.

i LOVE music ;)
* Mark D. Pencil & Friends (from iTunes) has some of my kiddos faves this year: Following Directions with Exercise, Do you know your alphabet?, and Numbers help me count.
* Carole Peterson: Sticky Bubble Gum, The Little Fish, Gifts for Mommy, and The Turkey Hop.

My always favorites are *Jack Hartmann, *Dr. Jean, *Greg & Steve, *Ella Jenkins, and *Raffi (too many songs to list!!!) They are my go-tos daily for both learning songs & great movement songs.

* Hap Palmer has some goodies too: Five Little Monkeys, Sammy, and Rock and Roll Freeze Dance.
* Stephen Fite: Hello, My Name is Joe, Hand Jive, Mr. Rabbit, and Herman the Worm.
* Charlotte Diamond: Octopus and The Garden Song.

Hope that helps!

Pete the Cat...
was my class favorite this year. There are two books out now that I know of and they love both of them. I think you can download the song from harpercollins online. They look at the book on the ELMO camera and sing along with it!
