Here is a Song about S

"Here is a song about S...S, S, the letter S!" Here's a little tune to address the letter S. There are a few ways to implement this activity: You can ask children to identify various S-word pictures; you can play "I Spy" and ask them to identify various S-words around the room; or you can sing nonsense words [...]

Welcome to another edition of...Saturday Song Share! The weather has been unbearably hot here in Miami (as always!) With that being the case, I thought it would be appropriate to release my song entitled "I Like to Eat Ice Cream."  I can eat ice cream any time of year, but there is nothing better than cold [...]

When I come up with new activities for my sessions at UCP's Early Beginnings Academy, I often consult the teacher's lesson plans.

Today I'd like to share one of my most popular songs, and it's about...BODY PARTS!

"Every week had 7 days, every week has 7 days!" The 'Days of the Week' Song is often heard being sung through the hallways of UCP's Early Beginnings Academy.

Today is Brought to You by the Letter…M!

Letter songs are always a hit with my children at UCP's Early Beginnings Academy. Learning the alphabet and recognizing letters are a huge topic for any preschooler or kindergartener! The teachers at Early Beginnings use a program called BELL (Building Early Language and Literacy) to teach phonological awareness, letter recognition, print awareness, and reading skills. I [...]

Here is a song called "Shapes, Shapes" (how creative!) that I wrote to help facilitate the process of learning shapes. Click here if you'd like to purchase the sheet music and use this song [...]

Favorite Resources for Addressing…Academic Concepts

2016-03-02T19:18:59+00:00July 23rd, 2011|

The administrators and teachers at UCP love that I am able to support the curriculum by creating songs that target specific academic concepts and are catchy and easy to memorize. I've [...]
