Singing in the Classroom

I read  this quote today: There's no half-singing in the shower, you're either a rock star or an opera diva.  Me--I'm a rock star!! :)  But do you see the looks on the faces in this cartoon?  I think my students look at me the same way when I sing in the classroom.  I can't carry a tune to save my life---but I enjoy adding music to my classroom.  It breaks up the day just perfectly.  One of my students today said, "She has a song for EVERYTHING."  I have figured out I can put almost anything to "If You're Happy and You Know It."  So I thought I'd add some songs that I have found/sang/chanted through the years.  I'm currently just working on calendar songs.  Maybe all my blogging friends would like to join in the same?  I'd love some fresh ideas! :)  As the year progresses, I will add more songs and categories to the list.  Click here for the PDF!!   Happy Singing Y'all! :)

  2. I have been doing calendar for many, many years and some of these are new songs to me. I can't wait to add them to our routine.
