Sing It and They Will Listen... Maybe

My friend Hadar (she teaches up the street from where I live and I almost died when I found out) is having a linky party about songs you use in your classroom. I am going over to her site (Miss Kindergarten to print out all the songs since I am so sick of mine!) What songs do you love to use. Be sure to link up with her and share! If you want this song you can download it here.

Dr Jean has many different transitional songs you might like. Try them!

I love this song from Dr. Jean!! I sing it almost daily! The students enjoy it too and we ended up making up more rhymes for it too!

I am not sure of the tune and I can't find it on You Tube. Let me see if it is on her website.

I made this song to help support our reading effort. Sing it to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Here goes.
Track, track, track your words.
Tracking can be fun.
Move your finger from left to right and sweep when you are done.

I think the tune for the "Everybody Have a Seat" song is "Shortnin' Bread." You can also sing it like this if you want the kids to sit in their chairs.
Not on the ceiling
Not in the air
Everybody have a seat
In their chair.
