YouTube Songs for the First of School

Are you ready for school?  Here are some great Back to School videos on YouTube.

First up!  Patty Shukla!  Love, love, love this song. This one is so catchy and has a great theme. Be responsible - be safe!  Thanks Patty for your great songs and videos. I have a link to her songs on Amazon at the end of the post.

The next one is about feelings.  You can do the same thing with your students.  I always read books about feelings at the first of the year.  We discuss them and then I take pictures of my students making these expressions.  I then turn the pictures into a video presentation through Animoto.  Children love acting out the different emotions.  Children just love being DRAMATIC!

Next is Harry's Kindergarten.  It's about the rules of the classroom in a rap version.

This next song is about feelings too. Young children need to express how they are feeling. They need lots of practice naming the different emotions and how to deal with them.


 Next is a song by Jack Hartmann. It is called Here We Go - The Directions Song. Our young children need fun ways to learn how to follow directions. Put directions to music and dance and let the fun and learning to follow directions begin.



Thanks for stopping by!
