Preschool Music and Movement Songs

As I have been doing online circle time with my students, it’s been fun to bring back songs the kids are familiar with, along with a few new ones. Sometimes it can be hard to have good engagement over Zoom, but the kids all love music and they love moving around!


I thought I’d post some of our favorite songs so that my students’ parents can find the songs we sing easily.

If you have some great movement song recommendations, let me know in the comment section! I’m always looking for new songs ­čÖé

It looks like you can listen to most of these songs if you have an Amazon Music Unlimited account. Click on this┬álink, and then go to Try Amazon Music Unlimited and it will offer you a free 3 month trial. That’s what I did ­čÖé Just remember to cancel it after 3 months if you don’t want to pay later.
