Monday Motivation: favorite kid songs

I’ve worked with kids for over thirteen years. When you work with children songs become an essential part of your speech.

Kids respond well to music.

Throughout the years I developed favorites. These are tunes that I continuously go to over and over and over again because they work. The following is a list of kids and mine’s favorite songs.

Top 12 favorite kid songs:

  1. Every little cell in my body is happy.
    Every little cell in my body is well.
    X2
    I’m so glad cuz every little cell in my body is happy and well.
    2nd ending
    I feel great cuz every little cell in my body is happy and well.
  2. Walking-walking, walking-walking
    Hop-hop-hop, hop hop hop
    Running-running running
    running-running-running
    Turnaround-turnaround.
    Stop, or freeze!
  3. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
    This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
    This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
    let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
  4. If you happy and you know it clap your hands
    If you happy and you know it clap your hands
    If you happy and you know it and you really wanna show it
    If you happy and you know it clap your hands
  5. Love is something if we give it away, give it away, give it away
    Love is something if we give it away, we end up finding more
    Love is like a lucky penny, hold it tight and you won’t get any
    Love is something if we give it away, we end up finding more
  6. God made you,
    God made me,
    Thank you God for making we;
    each two eyes, two ears,
    a mouth & a nose.
    Thank you God for making us.
  7. Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a ____, like me
    I once was lost, but now I’m found
    was blind but now I see
  8. the more we play together, together, together
    the more we play together the happier we’ll be.
    Cuz your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.
    The more we play together the happier we’ll be.
  9. Dirt made my lunch.
    Dirt made my lunch.
    Thank you dirt, thanks so much
    for my salad, my sandwich, my milk, my munch
    Because dirt you made my lunch.
  10. Somewhere over the rainbow way up high way up high
    theres the dreams that you dreamed of once in a lullaby…
  11. DO, a dear a female dear. RE, a dash of golden sun. MI, a name I call myself. FA, a long long way to run. SO, a needle pulling thread, FA, a note to follow SO. TI, I drink with jam and bread, and that will bring us back to DO-RE-DO.
  12. a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down
    the medicine go down
    the medicine go down
    a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down
    in a most delightful way.

Whichever song becomes your go-to remember to make it even more fun by adding movement and gestures to your words.

If you don’t have any children of your own, you don’t work with children, you don’t have any nieces or nephews, your friends haven’t made you an aunt or uncle and you never see any kids —still remember and consider the inner child in you. Always sing to yourself, and speak good things.Live your Present
