    I would love some recommendations for new, active "follow-along" songs, especially ones I can download on amazon. I'm really looking for ones with fun, upbeat music and clear instructions for the students to follow along (i.e. Jack Hartmann's Animals in Action). I have 5 categories (one for each day of the week) I usually do, so super-great if it fits into one of these:
    1. Travel around the Room (i.e. ants go marching)
    2. General Fun (animal dance, body part dance, going on bear hunt)
    3. Freeze Dance
    4. Math/Counting/Numbers
    5. Beanbag Dance

    Thanks!

    The kids loved "This Is The Way We Do It" by Greg & Steve.

    Check out Carole Peterson-- we love all of her cds, but especially Dancing Feet and Stinky Cake. These ones usually have instructions in the songs.

    Also, have you heard of HeidiSongs? We have her 1-100 song as well as all the letter sound songs and my kids cheer when they come on. These songs don't have instructions in the actual song, but you can download PDFs of the movements from her website for free, and the kids pick up the movements very quickly.

    Mark D. Pencil! "Do what Mark D Pencil Says" is a great one as well as the Following Directions Songs!

    I really like the songs on Super Simple Songs. They are great The tunes really grab preschoolers attention and the words are a bit slower and easier. Not so jittery and amped up.
