Much of the music we use during Best Practices trainings with Georgia PreK teachers can be found at The Learning Station. At their website, you can shop for CDs, register for conferences, read their blog, and download handouts and activities. They post new videos weekly at their YouTube channel. Here’s “Get Funky”, one of my favorites.
