These five original songs are intended to help teachers encourage their students to begin and end class enthusiastically and manage transitions successfully.
For music teachers, each song includes elements (form, pitch, rhythm) that can be isolated and adapted into a lesson.
Song 1: "Welcome to our Classroom" - a song for beginning the day
Song 2: "The Circle Song" - help students create a circle shape (for sharing, reading, games, etc)
Song 3: "Check It Out" - remind students about the importance of keeping their own personal space when sitting on the carpet or in the circle
Song 4: "A Little Bit of Line-Up" - review line-up procedures with this fun song
Song 5: "It's Time To Go" - end your students' day on a positive "note"
This download includes two versions of each song - one that can be projected for students to read and one what includes the sheet-music and movement instructions/notes for teachers. Recordings of the song are not included, but are available upon request.
