We are beginning this school year (2021-22) back outside in the fresh air. It’s a great opportunity to take off our masks and sing and move! To help children – and their families – learn the songs at home, I am posting videos of the songs on a YouTube channel. I also will have blog posts with lyrics and other accompanying materials for families to download. This page is the one-stop source for all of these links! It is a work in progress, so be sure to stop back!
