Here are some songs that work well for Elementary students, with fun activities to complement each song:

Songs in alphabetical order:


  • J’aime Papa
    • Images from the wonderful book “one family” to introduce students to diverse families: I ask them to find “a papa”, ‘a maman” “a grand pa” etc. in a way that respects all family structures
    • Super cute 2 min video with lyrics (I also take screen shots of the family members in the video and I bring a dog, cat, and elephant plush toys. I hand them out to the kids, they have to raise them in the air when they hear the family member)


  • Promenons-nous dans les bois


  • Tape, tape petites mains
