Develop calendar skills with this dynamic chart featuring 25 adorable songs set to familiar tunes! Display this engaging resource all year long to enliven and enrich your daily calendar routine with songs for each month and season. Includes audio versions of all 25 songs for sing-along fun—plus, a teaching page with instant activities and strategies!
Choose an appropriate song for the season, month, or skill you'd like to reinforce. Display a chart page on an easel or chalk ledge so everyone can see it. If you like, play the MP3 version of the song a few times until children are familiar with it. Now, invite kids to sing it with you, using a pointer to highlight each word as you go. For added fun and to boost fluency, challenge children to sing the song:
• emphasizing punctuation
In addition, encourage kids to clap out each beat or embellish the tune with simple percussion instruments!
