Action Songs for Preschoolers

We love action songs for preschoolers because they get the whole body involved! No sitting required. No being quiet. These songs allow the children to get up and move and release that energy that they always seem to have! While we have designated music and movement time, we will stop and turn on some of these songs at any given time in our day, when we can sense that our preschoolers need to get their wiggles out. Not only do we have music available in our classroom, but also in the gym and outside. We have opportunities to move to the music often!
