Thread Name: Help: Songs for children's program
Subject: RE: Help: Songs for children's program
Here's one other song. My daughter who is a kindergarten teacher has taught this song to her students. She learned it from her girlfriend who learned it from her son's pre-school class in West Virginia.

This song is a modification of the first verse of the theme song for the tv show "The Addams Family":

Days of the week.
snap snap*
Days of the week.
snap snap*
Days of the week.
Days of the week.
Days of the week.
snap snap*

There's Sunday
and there's Monday.
There's Tuesday
and there's Wednesday.
There's Thursday
and there's Friday.
And then there's Saturday.

Days of the week.
snap snap*
Days of the week.
snap snap*
Days of the week.
Days of the week.
Days of the week.
snap snap*

* Do the movements, don't say the words. I found that "clap clap" works better for pre-school and maybe kindergartgen children.

Here's a hyperlink to a YouTube video of The Addams Family theme song:
