18 Educational Music Videos for Early Learning ~ Alphabet, Counting & More!

Kids learn to count, learn shapes, sing the alphabet, and practice social skills as they move to the beat!

Here are 18 music videos for early childhood to get kids grooving to the music while they learn!

1. Lets Get Fit Count to 100 by 1’s Keep Your Mind and Body in Shape!  This song is perfect when you have to get some energy out and want a good exercise video for kids.  Play this if you ever have to stay inside during recess because of the weather.

2. Thats The Way We Learn to Count to 100 by 5  Our class loves to dance to this song!  It gets stuck in your head and you’ll be singing it all day, but at least you will know how to count to 100 by 5’s!

3. Dance Party Count by 5’s  This is the favorite song in our classroom at the moment.  Kids just love to dance to this one and it’s fun to try to keep up when the song speeds up!

4. Shapes Song A nice, relaxing song about shapes. Sit and relax, and see which shapes you can identify.  Eventually you’ll learn all of the shapes by name as you sing along!

5. Climbing Up the Mountain, Counting by 10’s!  We’re climbing up this mountain from beginning to end, climbing up this mountain while we’re counting to ten! Catchy, isn’t it?  Every time I am about to count by 10s, I chant the beginning of this song as a prelude.

6 Alphabet Rock Greg and Steve – Count to 20 by 1’s.  This is a good song to use when you are getting started with teaching counting.  You can let your students take turns with a pointer and follow along on a number chart as the song plays.

7. The Leapfrog Letter Factory Alphabet Song  This music video is perfect for teaching letters and letter sounds.

8. Big Numbers Song Relaxing music and counting to 1 to 100 and all the way to a trillion!  They pick up on the end of this song before the beginning half the time, the part that goes all the way up to billion ~ they love saying those big numbers!  Some of my students hum this when they are counting to 100.  Music makes memorizing easy, what else can I say?

9. ABC Rock by Greg and Steve  For this one, I give kids turns with a pointer so they can point to the letters as they sing along.

10. Down By The Bay With Rhyming Words for Music and Movement + Rhyming Practice.  Create movements for each part of the song and teach the kids.  You can also make picture magnets for each rhyming word and stick it on the board as you sing the rhyming words.

11. The Ladybug Song by Frank Ledo A great song for teaching body parts!  Link you’re thumbs and wiggle your fingers to create an imaginary ladybug who lands on you, crawls around,  and then flies away. Perfect for All About Me Units!

12. Going on a Bear Hunt This is another popular favorite in our classroom.  Its very fun, even though it can get pretty silly and loud at the end. Just make sure your door is closed.

13. Firetruck Song by Ivan Ulz Kids love this song about firefighters, especially when you choreograph some movements to go along with the music ~ Perfect for community helper units.

14. Belly Breathe feat. Colbie Caillat and Elmo  This is a very good song that teaches kids to take belly breathes when they are feeling upset sad or anxious.  You can remind students to take belly breaths if they feel upset and reinforce the idea with this video.

15. Tidy Up The Rhumba!  When it is time to clean up,  ring a bell. Then play this. The room will be sparkling clean in no time!

16. I Can Count to 100 Count to 100 along with this fun dance song!

17. Count Backwards from 10 to 1  A cute song with a nice rhythm for counting backwards from 10 to 1.

 

18. Hello Alphabet Train  This song has a great Dance Hall style rhythm and kids can sing about letters and words as they groove!

Tips for Watching Music Videos In The Early Childhood Classroom

You can enter full screen mode by clicking the button on the bottom right of each video.  Click the button again when you are ready to exit full screen mode.

Open up the music videos in multiple tabs or windows so you can quickly go from one song to the next.

Invest in high quality speakers, they really make a difference.  Children become more engaged when the sound quality increases!

Make sure to test out each music video before you play it in your classroom. It’s good to know if the song is fast or slow so you can play the right kind of music at the right time.

Rotate fast songs with slow songs.  You can play more than one fast song in a row if your kids need to get out some extra energy, but I think it is always good to end with a calm & quiet song!

Shark Crafts for Kids

During our ocean unit, we spend a little time learning about sharks and make a few easy shark crafts. Sharks can be kind of scary but these crafts are mostly on the cute side.

Here’s a list of my favorite easy shark crafts for kids.

#1. Make These Paper Plate Sharks
You can make these little sharks out of paper plates. Here’s how:

Cut out a red circle for the inside of the mouth, triangles for the teeth, and half-ovals for the eyes.

Fold the bottom part and staple or tape the eyes in place and use a marker to color the dark part of the eyes.

For the back fin, cut a paper plate in half and fold the bottom edges so it can be attached with staples or tape.

#2. Make Paper Plate Shark Jaws
The shark jaws are just a little creepy! Fold and cut paper plates in a jagged line and around the outside to create some realistic shark jaws!

#3. Create A Recycled Paper Towel Roll Shark
Reuse paper towel rolls to make this shark craft.  Cut out a triangle from one opening on the cardboard roll.  This will make 2 triangles.  Glue one to the back and one to the top to make the fins.  Paint the whole thing blue.  Add some small triangles cut from white paper to make the teeth, and glue into place.  Add google eyes and paint on some gills to complete your shark craft!

What You’ll Need:

snail craft template

Snail Outline PDF

Prep:

  1. Pre-cut the paper into snail shapes snails and draw an outline of a leaf.  You can use any color for the snails. The snail shape is a strip of paper, with the eye shape cut out on one end.  Here is a Snail Template you can use to draw the snail outline.
  2. Draw leaves on pieces of green construction paper
  3. Place paper snail templates, and leaf templates out with glue and scissors.

Engagement

  1. First kids decorated the paper snail template while they are still flat, using markers.
  2. Next, they rolled up the snails, starting from the end opposite from the eyes.
  3. Finally, kids cut out and decorate a paper leaf, then glue their snail onto it.

It’s such a fun activity. I think we will end up making them all week long!

snail craft
In my experience, the kids really liked decorating and rolling up the shells to make their snails.  A few of them made more than one. We ended up using all of them to decorate our Summer bulletin board!

Later on, I made some really tiny paper snails that were super adorable. You can make smaller versions of the snails and pair the tiny snails with a larger snail to make a whole snail family!

The idea for this snail craft came from: Snail Project by ArtforYoungChildren.blogspot.com

Activities to Go Along With This Snail Craft
