A Super-Duper List of Songs :)

I have been teaching kindergarten for 5 years now, and my favourite thing to teach has always been music. Sure, I love doing crafts too, but when we learn songs everybody is singing, playing instruments, and dancing happily – while also learning. It’s the moment of the day when I can be silly and loud, and the kids can express themselves freely. Our worries are left behind and we enjoy being there with our friends.

I’ve made a list of my favourie songs EVER. Some might say that I chose too many songs from Super Simple Learning, but I couldn’t help myself. Everything they do is GREAT!’s the list. I hope you’ll find it useful (click on the songs for the videos). I’m sure I forgot a lot of songs I like, but it’s too difficult to remember all of them.

Circle time songs:
How’s the Weather?
Hello, Hello!
Days of the Week
Days of the Week 2

Songs about weather:

What’s the Weather Like Today? (to the tune of Clementine):
What’s the weather? What’s the weather? What’s the weather like today?
Tell me _(insert kids name)__ what’s the weather, What’s the weather like today?
Is it sunny? Is it rainy? Is it cloudy out today?
Is it snowy? Is it windy? What’s the weather like today?
— No Time for Flashcards.

Everybody make a line,
For now it’s … time (lunch/snack/circle/dancing)

I hope your kids will enjoy singing them. They have made teaching English and establishing routines much easier for us! :)
