1.  Self Regulatin Song or Movement songs

Posted 10 days ago
I'm looking for songs to add to my playlist for indoor gross motor.  Songs that encourage self regulation like Hokey Pokey and Tooty Ta. Songs that tell the children the movement they should be doing for the song. I found some with searching movement songs but wanted to see if anyone had some suggestions, TIA.

My students love some of the classic Greg and Steve songs in this category - particularly Listen and Move, Animal Action, and The Beanie Bag Dance.  Charlotte Diamond also has some nice ones.

I Like Anne Meeker's music. She has some songs specifically focused on self regulation. You might want to visit her website -  https://www.singplaylove.com/
Jim Gill also has many fun movement songs -  http://www.jimgill.com/
Those are a couple of my favorites.

Laura Doherty has some great movement songs.  Our students love moving to "Shining like a Star" and "Popcorn."

I like Go Noodle. My class has been enjoying the song "Pop Se Co" by Koo Koo Kangaroo Roo. The site offers a section on movement with various songs.  The mindfulness videos are an excellent way to close movement/indoor recess and refocus.

The "Yoga for Kids" videos by Appuseries on YouTube are also excellent in place of energetic movement song. They provide great movement and focus.
