    Kids in my classes love the videos by Eric Herman... esp. Dance Like an Animal and I Like Elephants. Oh, and Ants in Your Pants. :)

    Just look him up on youtube.

    I found some Clifford cds at the dollar tree. They have all the familiar songs like wheels on the bus and bingo with a clifford twist to it. We play them while they are doing independent work. They have to stay busy and work smart or the music goes off. They like the music and keeps them in a better mood.
