List yours-songs to sign by
I was working on my lesson plans for tomorrows classes, and I thought it would be great to put together a list of songs we use to reinforce signing with our student groups or our own children (besides Signing Time)
A few that work well for me (Baby/toddler/preschool) which are pretty familiar:
The bear went over the mountain (also, other animals)
(BEAR, MOUNTAIN, OVER, UNDER, AROUND, THROUGH, BRIDGE, FOREST, RIVER, ROCK)
If you're Happy and you know it (HAPPY, SAD, MAD, SCARED etc)
Hey, Lolly (MOMMY, DADDY, BABY, SILLY, SONG)
Six little ducks (DUCK, BIG, LITTLE,PRETTY)
The wheels on the bus (BUS, MOMMY, DADDY, BABY, CHILDREN, TEACHER, CRY, LAUGH, TALK, PLAY, READ, QUIET, also LIGHTS, DOOR,WHEELS and any other bus part the kids can come up with!)
I like to eat (EAT,APPLES, BANANAS, also any other foods the kids have been working on or can think of that they like to eat-it was in one of these classes that I started signing ALLIGATOR PEAR for avocado)
Diddle, Diddle Dumpling (SON, PLAY, WORK, BED, SOCKS, SHOES)
This is the way (anything you might possibly do during the day)
Three little monkeys (JUMP, MONKEY, BED, MOMMY, PHONE, FINISH, DOCTOR, HELP)
One elephant (ELEPHANT, PLAY, SPIDER, FUN, COME HERE)
There was an old lady (WOMAN, EAT, BUG (or fly), SPIDER, BIRD, CAT, DOG, GOAT, COW, HORSE)
And a cute one I just found this week-Peanut butter (HEAD, SHIRT, PANTS, SOCKS, SHOES, UNDERWEAR, plus PEANUT BUTTER) Found on http://www.kellyskindergarten.com/Po...owerpoints.htm
There are powerpoints there for a lot of cute songs, and I plan to use sign clip art on some of the pages and print these out for my students and their parents.
Please add more-I'm always looking for new resources.
New lyrics to old-familiars...
I think we'd all love it if you posted publicly (rather than direct email), if you don't mind! :D
