My 5 year old recently taught me the continent song she learned at school! I could name the continents before, but really had to think about them. Now I can't get the song out of my head! The continent song is from a Dr. Jean C.D. She has some great educational songs and videos for PreK-1st grade!
Here is a You Tube video of Dr. Jean doing the Macarena Count to 100:
I love the idea of integrating more music and dance into the classroom. Research shows that integrating movement (mucle-memory,) music, art, etc. is how students learn best!
I've used Wrap-ups with my students and the songs that go with them. Some kids love it and others are easily frustrated with the pace of the song and completing the Wrap-ups.
How do you integrate music and/or dance into the classroom? I would love hear your ideas!!!
