Miss Abby would like to recommend these children's music CDs!
Get Funky and Musical Fun with the Learning Station by Learning Station
Recommended for ages 3 to 8
This CD is loaded with fun, interactive songs! They are also easy to follow along with. My favorite song on this CD is “Tarzan.” This is a very active song that gradually gets faster! Even if kids have never heard the song before, they are able to pick up the motions by the end of the song. This is followed very closely “If You’re Wearing Colors.” This song works on colors and rhyming at the same time. It also makes the kids move by having them stand and sit based on what colors they are wearing that day. It goes through the rainbow colors, but also includes some colors that children don’t necessarily hear about everyday like peach and tan. I also really like “From Your Seat.” This allows the kids to stay where they are sitting, but still get some energy out. It also teaches about beat as it is mentioned several times throughout the song. This music is great to use during circle time, or I use it frequently during story time to get the kids moving.

I enjoy this CD because the songs are very catchy. IT is also easy to add motions to them. The songs on this CD are about things children can relate to like food and animals. My favorite song is “I’m Gonna Catch You.” Children can run, jump, turn, and act out the different parts of the song during it. Plus it teaches the days of the week! Another one of my favorites from this CD is “Rocketship Run.” Kids can pretend to be taking a rocket ship ride, but it also talks about the different things out in space like the sun, the moon, and the stars. This music is great to get kids up and moving! It could be used during a circle time or interactive play. This music could also be great to use when in the car to keep kids entertained.
