Miss Heather would like to recommend these children's music CDs!
Birthday Party! Singalong by Music For Little People Choir
Recommended for ages 3 to 10
The Birthday Party Singalong is filled with songs to get kids moving. My favorites on this CD are: "The Balloon Game" which directs children to bounce a balloon on their finger, on their nose, on their knee & even their toes; "The Hokey Pokey" because who doesn't like a little hokey; and "The Freeze Dance" because kids love getting crazy so that their freezes will be guaranteed to be silly. I love silly, and I love watching children enjoy themselves! I've used these songs with children from preschool through fourth grade.
Kids In Motion by Greg & Steve
Recommended for ages 3 to 8
Kids In Motion is one of my most used children's CDs. This CD has two versions of the "Animal Action" song. Once I've used this song with preschool through second grade, I'm guaranteed to have repeated requests for it all year long. Each song maintains the same chorus "animal action is so much fun, animal action, move like a"... and then the different animals are called out, thereby sending the kids off croaking and hopping or buzzing and stinging, or you get the drift...making animal sounds while moving like that animal. It still amazes me to see a second grade student enjoy this song as much as a three year old! Greg & Steve also have a freeze dance song on this CD, and "The Freeze" goes well with everything!
