Preschool Songs

First off, all these songs are not my idea! They came from http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/   who as so many wonderful idea and plans for preschoolers. I am so thankful for blog. She keeps me inspired :) My son loves anything that goes to music and he learns best this way. I am constantly searching the web looking for ideas of lesson plans that I can put to song to make his learning more enjoyable and easier for me in the process to teach.  When I was teaching my older two the books of the Old and New Testament we went to song for reinforcement. Who picked up on and can sing along? My youngest. That's when I new, through it to music and we got a lesson that will stick in his mind. The problem with this is all my kids love to sing, but none of them can (or little secret) so we have a house full of people singing different sons at one time to memorize lessons, all out of tune! Life is so much better than any sitcom you can ever watch :)

If you are interested in the Books of the Bible songs here are a few links to those:
