Last week we shared some of our favorite songs for learning to count to 100. Calendar time is also a great time to use videos and songs. This collection of songs about the months of the year is terrific for preschool and early elementary age kids.
Months of the Year Song Videos
All songs are available in this playlist.
You can also see a brief description of each of the videos.
Title: Time: “Twelve Months of the Year” (Storybots on YouTube)
Description: My kids love Storybots videos, so we were thrilled to find this one. It sings through the months of the year and discusses how many months are in one year.
Title: Months of the Year Song (KidsTV123)
Description: This is our “go to” months of the year song. It’s simple and straightforward. The text in the video is large so kids can get the print connection. The pace is slow enough for kids to follow along, and the tempo is soothing.
Title: Months of the Year Song (HooplaKids)
Description: This song is more of a movie set to music. Kids won’t easily be able to sing along, but it is a helpful movie for helping kids understand how the months and seasons change. It describes seasonal changes and identifies the months as the movie progresses through the year from January to December.
Title: The Months Chant (Super Simple Songs)
Description: This chant is slow-paced making it terrific for kids just learning the months of the year. Parents and teachers should model repeating the chat along with kids until they become comfortable doing so on their own.
Title: 12 Months! (Harry Kindergarten Music)
Description: Harry Kindergarten Music is another channel my kids love songs from. This 12 months cheer is easy to follow along to, and has a fun beat.
