“Uh-huh!” from Super Simple Songs 2
available on iTunes
I love action songs with lots of fun movements for preschoolers to enjoy. They always have a great time jumping, kicking, marching and just dancing around – with one exception: when they’ve just come in from outside and it’s seriously too hot! Then I face a roomful of sweaty, slumping children who might like to sing a song, but are definitely NOT in the mood for anything too strenuous!!
A while ago I discovered a song from Super Simple Songs called “Uh-huh.” If you’re familiar with their material, you know that much of it seems to be most appropriate for very young preschoolers – toddlers, twos and threes.
“Uh-huh” is just as simple (super simple, in fact) as most of their music, and it’s short (about a minute long) but it’s very funny – not only for the little ones, but for fours and fives too. The “action,” such as it is, consists of nodding to “uh-huh” and shaking the head on “uh-uh,” and also doing the same thing with “yes” and “no.” Where the funny part comes in is that it goes pretty fast and everyone looks silly saying “Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-uh!”
Just a silly little song, but it’s always a hit and great to sneak in between other activities that might be more physically demanding. Really, listen to it – it’s hard to resist. The song is available on iTunes.
