Singing in class is an everyday habit of the Preschool B family. Not only is it fun, it also helps the children remember basic concepts like numbers, letters, days of the weeks, and colors to name a few.

The children also enjoy varying the loudness or softness of their voice and the size of the actions that they will do. It adds to the “fun factor” of each song.

There are many songs that we enjoy singing everyday but we have chosen the Top 5 most requested and sang by the children to share to you.

1. Eentsy Weentsy Spider

Eentsy weentsy spider
Went up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
Now the eentsy weentsy spider
Went up the spout again.

2. The Rainbow Song

How many colors does the rainbow have
each time it appears in the sky?
Red, orange, yellow, and green,
blue, and indigo,
the last one’s violet.

The rainbow song is another class favorite because it requires them to look for colors all around the place. They would often look first on what they or their classmates are wearing and then look around to find the colors.

3. Bow, Bow Belinda

DSC08038

Bow, Bow, Bow, Belinda
Bow, Bow, Bow, Belinda
Bow, Bow, Bow, Belinda
You’re the one I love

Both hands up, Oh, Belinda
Both hands up, Oh, Belinda
Both hands up, Oh, Belinda
You’re the one I love

Back to back, Oh, Belinda
Back to back, Oh, Belinda
Back to back, Oh, Belinda
You’re the one I love

Shake your hips, Oh, Belinda
Shake your hips, Oh, Belinda
Shake your hips, Oh, Belinda
You’re the one I love

Dance with your partner, Oh, Belinda
Dance with your partner, Oh, Belinda
Dance with your partner, Oh, Belinda
You’re the one I love
You’re the one I love

This song includes a lot of movements. Each of them would find a partner to dance and sing this song with. When the children are asked, “Do you want to dance?”, this song is often the first song they say.

4. Sampung Mga Bata

May isa, may dalawa, may tatlong mga bata.
May apat, may lima, may anim na mga bata
May pito, may walo, may siyam na mga bata
Sampung mga batang Masaya (haha)

Halina’t makinig ng awitan,
Halina’t manood ng sayawan
Halina’t magsaya at magdiwang
Lunes, Lunes na, Monday!

After counting the boys and girls who are present in class, the children know that this song is next one they will sing. The part where they would laugh and say “haha!” is their most favorite part. This song also helps the children practice counting in Filipino.

5. I’m a Little Teapot

I’m a little teapot, short and stout.
Here is my handle and here is my mouth.
When the water’s boiling hear me shout.
Lift me up and pour me out.

This song is one of their favorites because of the easy and fun actions. Using your body and forming the parts of a teapot surely is fun! They all agree as well that the “tipping over” is what would be their favorite action in the song.

Preschool B loves singing and dancing. We can’t wait to learn new and more songs in class! Come on! Ask your child how to sing and dance these songs so you can also enjoy the fun we have in class every time!
