End of the Year YouTube Singalong Playlist

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my District.  Woohoo!  My classes are always so crazy at the end of the year that I like to do something a little more active yet still musical.  So I created a YouTube playlist of 11 videos I found that are fun, sing-along (or move-along) type songs with the words and/or lyrics included.
These are the songs I included:

  • Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from "Mary Poppins" 
  • Hakuna Matata from "The Lion King"
  • There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, book by Simms Tabeck, narrated by Cindi Lauper 
  • Under the Sea from "The Little Mermaid" 
  • The Penguin Dance from "Mary Poppins" 
  • Plain White T's Song for Sesame Street (if you've never seen this, it's hilarious!  I love it!)
  • Going on A Bear Hunt (this is a great version of this!)
  • If You're a Kid (a fun movement listening activity - students must stand up for this)
  • Tooty Ta (keep the kids standing up, this one is hilarious!)
  • Mylie Cyrus Party in the USA - all kids love this one!
  • Katy Perry's Firework - standard summer musical fare :)

My students ate this up today and I particularly enjoyed it as well!  I hope you will too!  Feel free to share with friends, colleagues, and family.  NOTE: This would even be a fun playlist for kids on a road trip or bored waiting at a doctor's office!

  1. I have a started a word document titled "Karaoke For Kids" with hyperlinks to youtube videos that display the words.
    We now use this at functions like fall festival, etc. instead of bringing an actual karaoke set and worrying about getting everyone's cd's back to them. We prescreened the songs so they were all appropriate. We have a few of these on the list, but I will be adding some more :)
    I will try to post my list on my blog soon.
