Do you need some farm songs for your preschool class? Using music and videos can be a great way to help your kids learn important skills and concepts.
If you’re teaching your little learners about the farm and farm animals, these songs will help you supplement and support what you’re already doing in your preschool or pre-k classroom.
Farm Songs for Kids
Are your kids fidgety? Are they having trouble paying attention? Add some songs to your farm theme to get them up and moving to get those wiggles out! Your kids will also enjoy singing songs during circle time or transitions.
Music can be a great tool for introducing new concepts, building background knowledge, and developing vocabulary skills.
Songs About the Farm
You can find lots of fun, kid-friendly songs about the farm and farm animals to use in your preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten classroom at YouTube. If you don’t have spare time to search for and watch every video on YouTube, I’ve done all the hard work for you! You can rest easy knowing that all the videos listed here are age-appropriate and teacher-approved for young children.
One way to use these songs in your classroom is to show them on a smart TV, or by using an LCD projector and computer screen if your program allows. But you can just play the audio if you prefer, either way, your kids will have a blast singing and dancing along to these fun songs!
