Here are 20 preschool music and movement songs for your preschool or Pre-K children. These actions songs will get your children singing and moving, exercising, and learning while having fun.
Music and movement songs are a great way to integrate gross motor activities into your home and classroom routines. You can easily use these action songs as part of a preschool curriculum. They’re just right for morning meetings, circle time and afternoon break time.
You can also use action songs for indoor physical education time or anytime your children need to wiggle and dance!
Music and movement activity breaks help children in so many ways. They help them physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially.
They strengthen their gross motor muscles, channel their attention, challenge them to look, listen and move and work in groups.
PRESCHOOL MUSIC AND MOVEMENT SONGS
When children move, the brain is stimulated while strengthening and making connections between the body and the brain. This improves learning and physical abilities.
Music and movement activities help children in real life too. Marching helps them with climbing stairs. Dancing and freezing helps them learn to control their body and move in their own space.
It’s important to add in intentional opportunities for them the move frequently throughout the day.
This will help them stay focused and engaged in learning activities.
You can use these FREE YouTube videos as part of your daily routine. You don’t need to do any prep-we’ve done that for you. Show these videos on the computer, phone, or big screen tv and get moving.
Repetition also helps children learn. By making these activities a part of your daily routine, the children will be able to grow physically through repetition.
Sing Play Create wants children to move and learn with music and so Ms. Sandra has created music and movement activities to help children around the world.
