Why hello there! Long time no speak! I sure meant to share my Songs in the Classroom update with you a few months ago, but a new school year, wedding planning, and moving into a new house just seemed to get in the way! But here we are, so it’s all good 😉
Do you use songs in your classroom?? I am OBSESSED. I make up songs all day long! Well I put this little booklet together and hung it on a ring, but I don’t even look at it because I have all the songs memorized 😉 HA!
I did add little number tabs to each section so that they’re easier to find.
I also wanted to show you an easier way to organize these songs {since clearly time is of the essence these days!} You can print off each page, stick them in a page protector and store them all in a 3-ring binder.

Here’s a look at each section in the book.
These are songs I use throughout the day, especially during transitions. The best way to grab your students’ attention and get them to stop talking is to sing a song. They ALWAYS sing along, so eyes are on you and conversations have stopped. It’s miraculous 😉
Section Two is all about Calendar Time. We sing the whole time 😉 #favoritetimeoftheday
Section Three has fun songs to help your students practice vowel sounds, learning new words and spelling sight words.
I numbered each page so I can find the songs I need quickly. When we have a few extra minutes before snack we usually sing a word wall song. My kiddos love it!
I also created a whole separate section just for color words. Each color word song comes with visual cards that you can have a student leader point to while you are singing the song.
So the last few weeks, we’ve been working on word families! I made up this really fun song that I wanted to share with you. First, I asked my students to come up with words in the “at” family and wrote 6 of them on the board. Then we sang our song, to the tune of The Addams Family 😉
Each time we learn a new word family, we will think of 6 words and put them in our song!
Hope you are able to use some of these ideas!
