Preschool Song Booklet

This week I started homeschool with Owen. I thought it would be fun to have a more structured play time with him because I realized that there were some things I wanted to be sure that I taught him before he started Kindergarten.
I typed up 45 of my favorite preschool songs and laminated them.
There are some Sunday School favorites
Some songs that I remember from our little elementary school music class
And my favorites from our library's children's reading time.
I had the best time compiling this list and I can't wait to start teaching these to Owen. What fun! Would you like them too? Here's the link.

So as my homeschool journey begins, let me ask you... would you like to see some of the things Owen and I are working on? Do you homeschool too and if so, what are your favorite online resources?

I'd like to see some ideas. My daughter is 2 1/2 and I've been compiling things so I can start a little schooling for her when the new school year starts (or maybe even sooner!). Fresh ideas are always needed :)

Hi Sarah! I LOVE your blog and all of your creative ideas! I teach Kindermusik (music and movement classes for newborns-7 yrs) and elementary music and think it is so great that you are placing such an importance on music when you're working with Owen! I would love to see more things you guys are doing in your "classroom"!

I also wanted to tell you that I have "pinned" your blog on my Pinterest board as someone who insprires me. http://pinterest.com/melanie_stewart/what-inspires-me1/

Natalie said...

Hey Sarah! I totally want to see what you're doing with little O. I've been convicted of not being structured enough with 3 1/2 year old Greta and I think she would love it.

Brandy said...

Someone already mentioned this link.

confessionsofahomeschooler.blogspot.com

I wanted to mention it again and say that we particularly use the Letter of the Week Curriculum with our preschoolers. It's fun and they love it!

Enjoy!

The Cahoons! said...

Yes, keep the homeschool ideas coming! I'm planning on teaching my boys at home starting this fall, and I could use all the help I can get!

Carpenter's said...

Sarah,

These are fantastic ideas and I can't wait to see MORE!! Your little man Owen is pretty lucky to have you! :)

I dont' homeschool but I do enjoy keeping my children busy with cute activities such as these, thanks for sharing!

Shannon said...

Thanks for these, Sarah! I tend to go blank when I try to think of songs other than the four or five I usually sing with the kids. Loving this variety! :)

Ginny said...

Wow! Thank you! My education degree & experience are for upper elementary/middle school. Since I've been gathering ideas to work with my toddler, I've been drawing a blank on songs! (Today, I even resorted to the Name Game Song. "Mommy Mommy Bo Bommy, Banana-Fana-Fo-Fommy...") I'll print out your PDF and start teaching Elizabeth some fun new songs.

Shaper of Little Souls said...

I love your little cards with songs! I have been wanting to do something like this of a while! I tried printing your but the font was really small. Is there another way for me to print it larger?

Sarah said...

Shaper, I'll email you the PDF. The font is pretty small (I think it's 8pt) to fit on the cards. I hope that helps! Thanks for reading!

The Mama said...

Is there anyway you could share the PDF with me, too? Thank you so much for your time & resources!

Many medieval English verses associated with the birth of Jesus take the form of a lullaby, including "Lullay, my liking, my dere son, my sweting" and may be versions of contemporary lullabies. However, most of those used today date from the 17th century. For example, a well known lullaby such as "Rock-a-bye, baby on a tree top", cannot be found in records until the late-18th century when it was printed by John Newbery.

Publish John Newbery compilation of rhymes English, Melody Mother Goose, or, Sonnets for the cradle, is the first record we have many rhymes classic, still in use today. appears that these rhymes may come from a variety of sources, including puzzles traditional proverbs and stories, and lines of plays Mummers' and drinking songs, historical events , and, it has been suggested, ancient pagan rituals. nearly half of the currently recognized English rhymes "traditional" was known by the mid-18th century.
