Product Description
Welcome! This product is a zipped file of three of Debbie Clement's original songs for children. You'll find this set to be VERY active. They are movement-dance songs, suitable for 'brain breaks' within the school day. You'll be up! You'll be moving! You'll get recharged! You'll have your body and brain flooded with oxygen! You'll hear, "Let's do it again!" The songs are filled with rhythm, rhyme and repetition.

The file will come 'zipped' with an Mp3 of each of the three songs. There are also simple lyric sheets included.

You're going to LUV "Jumpin' Jamboree" which is filled with alliteration. The two verses alternate between jumping with abandon and freezing frozen. Help your students listen to directions and control their bodies. Work on balance and the proprioceptive skills of 'knowing where your body is in space.'

"Higgeldy Dance" is a full class circle dance. Everyone will join together to circle around and then go in and out. The verses scaffold one on top of the next. I wrote this song while in Scotland and listening to the unique speech segments that made me smile.

The final selection is "Monkey Fun" with a distinct beat. The lyrics are spoken with a 'rap' emphasis. This is a counting song, starting at zero and counting to nine and then counting back down to zero again. Everyone is invited to do their best monkey imitation!

Thanks so much for your support and I look forward to your feedback. Please visit my blog for oodles of insight into me, my work and my travels making school visits around the country as author/illustrator-music lady.
