Developmentally Appropriate Songs

As Educators we all know how often we break out into song throughout the day! Those who are familiar with the classroom environment would think we sounded crazy or as if we were in a musical. We use songs to say good morning, songs to pack away the room, songs to organise large groups and avoid yelling, songs to learn about information, and songs just for fun! However even myself as an educator can be quick to have a mind blank of the hundreds of songs I know. There is definitely no time for pausing while you have the whole group waiting impatiently for the group time to begin. I have created an easy to print poster of age appropriate songs. The songs are placed into categories for infants and preschoolers just as a guide. Feel free to print this poster out and place in your own classroom. I have mine right near my interactive whiteboard so I can see it every day!
