    Are you wanting songs ot sing, or songs on CD?

    For CD's, there's lots of good "wiggly" songs on Dr. Jean, Jim Gill or Greg and Steve CD's. Jim Gill has one with "The Silly Dance Contest" and Greg and Steve have "The Freeze."

    I like Head Shoulders Knees and Toes.
    We do it very slow and very fast. The kids love it.

    You can sing Shake your sillies by Raffi. The kids love it and it gets them up, moving and singing.

    Every morning I do a little warm up activity, either with Greg & Steve or Simon Says, etc. There's a great song called "Wiggle Wobble" from Greg & Steve, while it plays I give instructions for the kids to wiggle something like their heads, arms, tongues, its really funny to watch them.

    In the afternoon in between math and science/social studies I have them do a bend and stretch to this poem:

    "Bend down then reach for the stars
    There goes Jupiter! There goes Mars! (while reaching for the sky try and catch Jupiter/Mars... then pretend to catch something and hide it from everyone)
    Take a look! Show a friend!"

    We usually do this twice because someone might not be reaching far enough. Its a great transition and way to get their wiggles out after lunch.
