Chanting is an easy way to incorporate movement playfully and purposefully into your academics and curriculum. I love using these chants as a way to gather children at circle time and during transitions to harness energy in a positive and productive way. All learners can participate in some way, they can chant, turn the pages or point to the words as others chant along. All you need to know how to do is keep a steady beat! And perhaps most importantly, the Common Core Standards of reading, speaking, listening and recall are fostered and reinforced every time you chant with your children. Check out these chants and other energizers on my very own YouTube channel called "SueTube".
