Super CDs

If you are not well acquainted with Dr. Jean, I highly recommend that you check out her website – drjean.org.  I own almost all of her CDs and used them a lot.  Her website also has wonderful printable materials and great ideas.  If you ever have a chance to attend one of her workshops I think you’d enjoy it – and her books are great too!  I am a fan!

Here is a list of some of the CD’s I liked, I starred some of my favorites:

  • *Keep on Singing and Dancing (Hello Neighbor, Alphabet Forward & Backward, May There Always Be Sunshine)

    Could you write about your favourite Christmas Concert Songs or Presentations for Kindergarten? It’s okay if you have to go with the school theme but once in awhile you have to do your own thing and then it’s a bit harder I think! Thanks!

    Thank you, Thank you for your blog! I just found you yesterday while searching for sight word music. You are an endless source of Kinder help and I am thrilled to have found you.
    Thank you…
