English clothing song for Kids. My shirt, jacket, socks, shoes

Our most popular song ! The Clothing Song by The Magic Crayons.

It's the beginning of the school year for many kindergarten and pre-school teachers around the world, and songs don't much better than this for introducing clothing vocabulary to students. As you may have noted from the video we are based in Japan and teach English as an additional language to students in Kindergartens here.

It is a great song and students can take part even from their first time of hearing it with you. You can find the lyrics or download the song from our clothes songs page, Teachers Pay Teachers, iTunes or Amazon. It is one of 16 great songs on our Robots And Rainbows album available to download or on CD. We offer very nice discounts on purchases of two or more CDs, and many teachers and schools worldwide sell these to students for additional students support plus of course a little something financially for your self too. Please contact Tim for full details. Additionally, we have clothing games and clothing flash cards to accompany this song. If you wish to make your own work sheets or activities we have clothing clip art too. Everything within this website has been tried, tested, and improved in our own classes before making it available to you...

Songs for Morning Meeting and Calendar

Songs for morning circle

Mrs Dunn spent the better part of two days finding music to go with her calendar.
As much as I love singing with the kids, it is nice to find some tunes so you don't have to listen to your own voice for morning meeting and calendar routine. I have all of my calendar on my SMART board this year, and I added sound to the different parts to go with the calendar. To save you some time, here is my full list of songs! (these were all downloaded off iTunes).
Please see the full post for the complete list, but here is Mrs Dunns days of the week selection
