    I like to use “The Circle Game” by Joni Mitchell when teaching children how to keep their hands safe when playing with others:

    “Keep your hands, keep your hands in the middle, in the middle Keep your hands, keep your hands in the middle, in the middle” In the circle game”

    I really like this song because it is about self-control and following directions.

    I like to use the song I’m so Happy by the Singing Walrus. It’s an upbeat song and it get the kids moving plus it’s a repetition song too. So whatever action it says to do then the children repeat it. Plus, it’s a great way for the students to get their bodies moving.

    We like to use ribbons with our music. Ribbons are a dowel the ribbons attached to the end. When child moves their arm, it flutters in the air. We do fast songs and slow songs to watch the movement of our ribbons. They love to play anddance wth the ribbons.

    One of my favorite songs and movement to do with preschoolers is Jump Jim Joe. It is slow enough for children to learn to control their movements yet incorporates friendship building skills by changing partners.
