FUN EDUCATIONAL MUSIC

2 - 7 years
Excellent Children's CD's For Parents and Teachers
By Jill Kemp
All the CDs have dynamic, imaginative music and sound
effects which appeal to children; are not too fast; have excellent lyrics and are
good value - at least 40+ minutes each. The songs have been tried in a class
teachers will find they will use almost all of the songs on each CD. It is
disappointing when there are only one or two songs on a CD which actually suit a class
environment. Made by a teacher for parents and teachers.
Songs with a purpose - to develop children using
fun action songs.
All CDs have actions and word sheets included, but separate pages may be printed
- from this website. Also see
pictures and ideas for each CD.
Listen to music clips of each song - see
individual titles below Index list.
Action songs and some resources for Kindergartens, Pre-Schools, Music and
Movement groups, Parents &Teachers etc.

And Fun Merry Go Round
- Excellent for first year Primary school teachers,
Early Childhood educators and parents. Children learning through music and fun.
"Boy" songs too! Not too fast. These songs focus on enhancing fine motor skills, spatial
awareness, imagination, left and right brain development, co-ordination, work
ethic, self esteem, perspective, basic math concepts beyond sequential counting, pointing
1:1 (a skill foundational to reading and maths) language, rhythm and movement, right
and left, north and south, role playing, sharing, and
extends vocabulary through songs using ribbons,
instruments, lycra, bubbles, bean bags etc. Children learn to follow instructions, preparing them
for school. Teachers have commented
that if they need
a song for any given topic the first place they look is in the Lambsongs range of
CDs! There is even a very trendy healthy food song.
There has been a lack of
material available to celebrate the traditional Christmas story suitable to use with young
children. Many traditional songs have language today's child cannot relate to:
"Away in a manger no crib for a bed - the cattle are lowing!" I have kept
the concept and melody of traditional Christmas Carols but changed the words to make more
sense i.e. "Away in a manger in a bed made of hay." There were no songs for Angels
or the Wise men (except for Twinkle Star) being a teacher I understand there is
little time to learn new songs, so I have written lyrics to melodies most people are
familiar with - Little Donkey song to "Five Little Ducks"etc. I have written a beautiful
song about Mary and baby Jesus to Brahm's lullaby.
I don't think any one has ever
written about Jesus' button nose before! It expresses how baby Jesus touched Mary's heart
- a feeling every mother experiences when her baby smiles up at her! It
also suitable for baby dedications or a child's funeral. Many children don't get the opportunity to
hear the traditional Christmas story. Richard Gunther, a well know illustrator, generously
donated his time to illustrate these songs and the booklets are free to print from this site.
Putting the booklets on line is an
on going project.

Faith building through
fun action songs.
Excellent for Kindy Church, Christian Early Childhood
Educators and parents.
Bible story concepts to build faith for life in young
children through fun, action songs. Particular attention has been given to ensure lyrics can
be understood by today's child. Many of the songs have a familiar melody for ease of
teaching. Some parents express the desire that their children learn
about God even though they them-selves don't attend a church - Noah's Ark CD uses
simple basic Christian faith concepts in a fun way - have it playing in the car -
Sunday School on wheels! Great music and sound effects. Children love these
