'Tips For Using Songs In Your Classroom'
ALL of our resources are COVID-FRIENDLY. If your school is not allowed to sing atm because of restrictions, our song lyrics stand alone as poetry.
• Not musical ~ NO worries!

• Students read / sing / learn along as the song plays and the lyrics display on the screen.
• No need to print out lyrics or create a power point - the Mp4 does it all for you, making it easy for the whole class or school to follow the lyrics on any screen and read/sing along together.
• Stop video at any time, to discuss/clarify/reinforce content, define words, discuss punctuation, etc.

Happy, happy, healthy kids,
Happy, happy, healthy! (X2)
We’re happy, happy, healthy kids,
It’s how we’d like to stay.
We eat nutritious, healthy food
At every meal each day.
We know that there are five food groups,
So, now we can’t go wrong;
’Cause we know what we must do
To grow up healthy, fit and strong.
Vitamins, minerals, good fats, Proteins, carbohydrates,
Help keep bodies healthy, SO
Put good food on your plates.
Bodies are like fine machines,
let’s eat the things we’re meant to.
Fruit is beaut, go use your loaf AND
Choose what you chomp into!
Do do do do, da da da. Do do do do do...
