This month’s song kicks off a new category of my Songs of the Month: Read 'n Sing Songs
“Read’n Sing Songs” will support early literacy. That means they will have printable pages so children can follow along with the lyrics and “read” along, either matching pictures to words, or noting the rhyming words. Many of the past Songs of the Month fall into this category, but I haven’t listed them separately. Now you will be able to locate them in the categories listing. Next to each song title will be a note about the early literacy skill the song reinforces, and description of the printed material to accompany the song.  This should make it more efficient for teachers to target the songs of the month which best support their work in early literacy. Of course I hope parents will also use the printable pages!


I Like Sandwiches has a printable page with pictures over the nouns in the lyrics, so children can “read” along. If you project the lyrics on an overhead, the class can read along as the song is played.

I am double-checking the lyrics to make sure they match the recording exactly. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do that would be helpful to you. Check the categories page for a listing of early literacy Read ‘n Sing songs!
