Theme songs for kids daycare

I thought maybe some of you would like to share some of the songs you use in your daycare. I always am looking for songs to go with my theme days. Any ideas I would love to hear them!

thanks debbie

Songs to teach safety

Safety
(sung to twinkle twinkle)
red means stop and
green means go
yellow watch out ,you
better go slow!
Keep your eye right
on the light
it will tell you
what is right!
red means stop and
green means go
yellow watch out you
better go slow!

Buckle Up
(sung to a hunting we will go)
The wheels go round and round
we drive the car in town
we buckle up
in case we stop
so we'll be safe and sound

When I cross the street
(sung to have you ever seen a lassie)
When I cross the street,the street,the street
when I cross the street, I make sure that i am safe
I look this way and that way and that way and this way
when i cross the street, I make sure that I am safe!


Happy singing
Debbie

FIREMAN SONGS


I am a Fierman
(sung to I'm a little teapot)
I am a fireman, dressed in red
With my fire hat on my head
I can drive the fire truck, fight fire too
And help to make things safe for you!

Firefighters
(sung to pop goes the weasel)
Down the street the engine goes
The fireman fight the fire
Up th ladder with their hose
Out goes the fire

I am a policeman

One of our centers uses the following song at the beginning of circle time; it can be used to help with learning names at the beginning of school yr or when new students come into the classroom - or - to encourage those students who are slower to come to the "carpet" for center time...because everyone likes to hear their name in song.

Begin with clapping hands in rhythmn and sing as chant...

I see (child's name) sitting in the circle,
I see (next child's name) sitting there too.

(repeat these two lines, going around the circle until everyone's name has been sung - including the teachers)

I see EVERYBODY sitting in the circle
(last line is spoken)

INSECT SONGS

SPIDER SONG
(twinkle twinkle little star)
Spider, Spider
In the sky
Weaving your webs way up high
Catching bugs and insects too
What a chore it is for you
Spider, spider
In the sky
Weaving your webs way up high


ANTS ARE BUSY
(thumbkin)
The ants are busy
The ants are busy
Yes they are
Yes they are
Busy finding some food
Busy building their home
Work away
Work away


PRETTY LADYBUG
(muffin man)
Ladybug has 1 black spot, 1 black spot, 1 black spot
Ladybug has 1 black spot
Pretty ladybug


THE ANT SONG
(the more we get together)
If I could be an ant, an ant, an ant
If I could be an ant, what color would I be?
Red or brown or black you see
If I could be an ant, I would be quite………..(name a color)



BUMBLE BEE BUMBLE BEE RHYME

Bumble bee, bumble bee
By the barn
Bumble bee get Johnny
Under the arm

Bumble bee, bumble bee
By the boulder
Bumble bee get Johnny
Under the shoulder

Bumble bee, bumble bee
By the tree
Bumble bee get Johnny
Under the knee


BUZZING AROUND THE ROOM
(when johhny comes marching home)
A bee is buzzing around the room,
Buzz buzz, buzz buzz
A bee is buzzing around the room
Buzz buzz, buzz buzz
He’ll buzz around the room once more
And then he’ll buzz right out the door
And we’ll all be glad when
He is gone once more


FIVE BUSY HONEY BEES

Five busy honey bees were resting in the sun
The first one said, “let us have some fun”
The second one said, “where shall it be?”
The third one said, “in the honey tree”
The fourth one said, “let’s make some honey sweet”
The fifth one said, “with pollen on our feet”
The five little busy bees sang their buzzing tune
As they worked in the beehive all that afternoon
Bzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz!


FLIES AND BEES
(sing a song of sixpence)
Flies and bees are insects
Buzzing all around
Coming to our picnic
And landing on the ground
And when our picnic’s over
And we are on our way
We know that the flies and bees

Will come another day!

HERE ARE A FEW SONGS WE ARE LEARNING TO SING ABOUT OUR GREAT COUNTRY.

WE ARE PROUD CANADIANS
(sung to sing a song of sixpence)
We are all Canadians
Living in this land.
If you were a Canadian
You would understand

Why we love our Country
And why we are so proud.
We are Proud Canadians
And we will shout it out loud.


O CANADA SONG
( sung to O Christmas tree )
O Canada O Canada
How I love my country
O Canada O Canada
How I love my country
With Rocky Mountains and Northern Lights
And maple leafs that skate on ice
O Canada O Canada
How I love my Country

NORTHERN LIGHTS
(twinkle twinkle little star)
Glowing glowing Northern Lights
How you shine so very bright
Waving over our land so high
Dancing brightly in the sky
Glowing glowing Northern Lights
How you shine so very bright

OUR COUNTRY SONG
(the muffin man)
Do you know our country’s name
Our country’s name, our country’s name
Do you know our country’s name
C-A-N-A-D-A

It has blue lakes and mountain peaks
Mountain peaks, mountain peaks
It has blue lakes and mountain peaks
C-A-N-A-D-A

There are moose and beavers too
Beavers too, beavers too
There are moose and beavers too
C-A-N-A-D-A

You’ll see oil and prairie grass
Prairie grass, prairie grass
You’ll see oil and prairie grass
C-A-N-A-D-A

Lots of cowboys and Mounties here
Mounties here, Mounties here
Lots of cowboys and Mounties here
C-A-N-A-D-A

See the Bluenose and reversing falls
Reversing falls, reversing falls
See the bluenose and reversing falls
C-A-N-A-D-A

Canada is our country’s name
Our country’s name , our country’s name
Canada is our country’s name
C-A-N-A-D-A

Do you know of the Wiggles??
Some of their songs are great for theme days.
We have been celebrating our Teddy bears this week and used the following songs:

Rock a bye your bear (Wiggles)
Here comes a bear, stomping, stomping (Wiggles)

Teddy Bears Picnic (trad)

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear (earlier post)

We're going on a bear hunt (Chant)

Goldilocks Rap (chant)

5 (or10!) Teddy bears jumping on the bed. (Use sheet or parachute for them to be thrown around on)

* * * * * * * *

For a farm theme we sing:

Dingle Dangle Scarecrow
Old MacDonald had a farm

Then we introduce individual animals:

5 Little ducks went out one day
6 Little ducks that I once knew


Frogs:

Mr Frog jumped out of the pond one day
Der Glumph said the little green frog one day

We always finish with Open Shut them, so the kids know when our time is over.


If you need words for any of these songs, let me know.

Meg
