    I am moving down from 1st to kinder. I observed a teacher that uses several songs to begin the day, at transitions, etc.

    I know Dr. Jean is a big one. Are there any other songs/CD's that are just perfect for the kinder age????

    Thanks

    Welcome to K! If you can find Piggyback Songs for School (book) that will work. It is an old but very valuable resource that I use.

    When we are lining up to leave the room for specials, lunch or recess we sing this song while they are at the door in line:

    When our hands are by our sides,
    We're standing straight and tall,
    Mouths are closed,
    eyes look ahead
    We're ready for the hall.

    And of course, Dr Jean is always a must in kindergarten.
