A good laugh is sunshine in the house. – William Thackery

Silly Songs for Kids
How to Stream Music in the Classroom or at Home
If you want to get songs without the ads from YouTube, there are a couple simple solutions. You can click the songs directly from this post, and it should take away most of the ads. Screen it first to make sure it works for your needs.
If you are using just audio, I have Amazon Music Unlimited. It isn’t free, but well worth it for me because we use it each day between the classroom and home. If you would want to download more than 10 songs a month, it’s worth its weight in gold!
It’s compatible with your phone, electronic devices, Alexa, and computer. What’s great is that I can download the songs while I’m home on my phone using wifi with the Amazon Music app. Then the songs are always there on my phone, and I can play them in the classroom, the car, or anywhere else.

Hey guys! (Hey what?) Are you ready? (For what?) To pop? (Pop what?) Only Go Noodle knows, and they aren’t telling! But we’re sure glad they asked us to Pop See Ko!
Boom Chicka Boom by The Learning Station
Learn the simple phrase along with our Learning Station friends, then repeat as they do it baby style, cowboy style, motorcycle style, janitor style (my favorite,) Elvis style, and underwater style. Smiles guaranteed! Stick around after the song for a fun tongue twister challenge.
