Hap Palmer CD: Learning Basic Skills Through Music

This is one of my favorites and a favorite of nearly everyone who has used it according to the Hap Palmer website.  I used Learning Basic Skills Through Music in my Early Childhood class, and I enjoyed it as much as the children.  These learning songs are great action songs as well that help get out the wiggles out of restless students.   Here is a list of the songs:

  • 1. Colors
  • 2. Put Your Hands Up In The Air
  • 3. The Elephant
  • 4. The Number March
  • 5. Marching Around The Alphabet
  • 6. Growing
  • 7. This Is The Way We Get Up In The Morning
  • 8. Birds
  • 9. What Are You Wearing?
  • 10. What Is Your Name?

By the way, Hap Palmer’s first recording of this was in 1969, but it is still as catchy and enjoyable today as it was back then.   Hap Palmer’s songs are timeless!  The songs are easy to learn and help with retention of skills in a musical way.
