Songs in a 5 Year-old World
"Did you ever see a whale, with a polka dot tail? Down by the bay..."
"I'm a little teapot, short and stout."
"Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes, Eyes and ears (poke self in eyes), and mouth and nose,..."
"The eency weency spider, Hey, that's now how we sing it at home."
"The farmer in the dell, the farmer in the dell, Remember, so and so was the cheese!"
"Do the Going on a Bear Hunt song again."
"Can we sing the fast Mr. Sun?"
The Wheels on the Bus, The Alphabet Song, The Vowel Chant, The Freeze, Aikendrum, ...
And don't forget Pete the Cat was walking down the street...
But our recent favorite has been God's Not Dead. Repeated. Repeated. Repeated. Once a voice hums even a slight hint from the song, the words pop out, and 9 little voices join the fun.
I guess, if God's Not Dead is a favorite song, things are going pretty well in kindergarten.
