									                                           Websites for Songs

1. – This website has CDs of educational songs to purchase. There is a wide
    selection and some songs are available to listen to off of each disc.

2. – This site has about 40 traditional children’s songs and lyrics (i.e. The Wheels on
    the Bus, Bingo, the Alphabet Song) and large selection of free downloads from contemporary
    children’s artists with no lyrics included.

3. – This location has a variety of musical rhythmical options for your classroom. It
   is designed for ESL students/teachers but it can be applied in any elementary classroom. There are
   traditional songs, original songs about diverse topics, vocabulary chants, and flashcards. Many songs
   are available for a free download but there are also several CDs available for purchase. Some songs
   have videos available and usually there are links for accompanying activities.

4. – This site is affiliated with This is where most of the
    traditional music can be found for free downloads. There are also a few songs available with sheet

5. – If you are looking to incorporate music from around the world – this site is great!
   Songs can be found from diverse cultures in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia
   and Australia. Many songs come with a video or a free download and songs in languages other than
   English are shown in their original language and English. The site also offers nursery rhymes, kid’s
   poetry and food/recipes from around the world.

6. – This website has songs sorted by subject (mathematics, holidays, folk
    songs…etc). The songs can all be listened to on the site and some can be downloaded for free; others
    have to be purchased through another website.

7. – This site has hundreds of traditional and non-traditional songs available for children.
   Songs are listed in alphabetical order – some have midi music to accompany them. There is also a
   section on the site for lyrics which can be sorted by subject. If you become a member (it’s free) you
   can access printable lyrics sheets and printable sheet music.

8. – This website is provided by the National Institute of Environmental Health
   Sciences and it has a variety of songs related to the environment (some of them are rather loosely
   environmentally related). The majority of the songs include the lyrics and a midi file with the music.
   I don’t think that the songs are available for download. On the site you can also find brainteasers,
   games and activities, stories, jokes and other stuff.

9. – This location has a few children’s songs available for download but the main
   attraction is the selection of other activities that are offered. On the site there are instructions for
   building musical instruments using household items (bottles, spoons, straws…etc), composing music,
   and activities related to rhythm and melody. Teacher guides are also available in the “how-to”

10. – This site has over 2000 songs with lyrics, videos and/or music. There are also
   nursery rhymes and lullabies available.
