Kids love music! I try to find ways to incorporate it throughout our school day. It is such an amazing learning tool.
My Songs for the Year packet is the perfect tool for any primary classroom.
I love using songs during our school day! Kids LOVE to sing. They sing with abandon, and they do not care who is listening. I, on the other hand, cannot carry a tune to save my life! You will NEVER catch me doing karaoke. Thankfully, 1st graders don’t judge, and I can get away with singing to them 😉
Our Morning Meeting each morning is the perfect time to add song to our day. I always sing a “welcome song” to invite my students to the carpet area.
I also included songs to fit some common themes that you may be teaching this school year. It’s all about integration!!!
Every song comes in a color, and a black and white version. The color version is perfect for displaying on an easel or on a document camera. The black and white version is great for song and/or poetry journals. Your students will love practicing these songs, and it’s perfect for working on fluency!
I also love the idea of printing these 4 to a sheet, laminating them, and putting them on a metal ring. You can carry the songs with you for those times when you may need a quick song to fill “wait time,” or put the songs at a literacy station for your students to sing.
My girls always like to try out my items, so here is a little video of my soon to be 3rd grader teaching my soon to be Kindergartener one of the songs.
This is the song that they were singing.
Here is the Table of Contents, so you can see which themes are covered in the packet.
Head on over to my TpT store to check out this packet of 37 songs.
