Geography Songs: Sing Around the World

Several of you have emailed and asked what we are using when I mention our 'geography songs'. Last year I purchased a song book and CD set from Rainbow Resource that is called Geography Songs: Sing Around the World by Kathy Troxel/Audio Memory.

Amazon just made the entire cd available as an mp3 download for $8.99. While the download doesn't come with the book, that is considerably less than the $21 that I paid for the book/cd combo. You can also listen to clips of the different songs and get an idea of what the cd is like before buying it. Right now we're using the 'Southern Europe' song {#5} if you'd like to hear it! :)

Now while the songs are super-catchy, you will find yourself humming various songs ~ especially if you wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back asleep.

Not that I speak from experience or anything.

We try to sing the song that goes along to the area we are studying every day or every other day. The first few days we get the country names down and then move over to a map and point out the countries while we are singing the song so we can get a bigger picture of where the countries are. I can honestly say that the kids aren't the only ones learning something using the songs!
