I love to sing! And I love to write songs. When I was a little girl we had two swing sets in our backyard in the Midwest. I would come home from school, climb onto a swing and sing songs all afternoon. Sometimes other kids from the neighborhood would come over to our yard to swing also. All of us would sing songs together while we swooshed up to the sky on our swings!
I write silly songs, funny songs, fast and slow songs, songs that teach you how to do something, counting songs, songs that tell a story, jumping, hopping and leaping songs and animal songs. And of course I like to sing old familiar songs – sometimes in a new way.
Jumping In My Circle
Do you have a hula hoop? Or even a long piece of string to make a big round circle? Do you have a ball? Put your circle down on the floor. Put your ball near your circle. Now step inside your circle and begin Jumping In My Circle.
Mouse In The House
Put your little mouse paws up and get ready to tiptoe! Shhh! Not a sound when you walk around as a Mouse In The House.
Zuba This and Zuba That
Can you do everything that Zuba does? Get ready to twist and shout, turnabout and show your fancy pants! Get ready for Zuba This and Zuba That.
Miss Navida’s Jingle Bells
Shake a bell or clap your hands and don’t forget to shout HEY! Sing along and take a little jump with Miss Navida’s Jingle Bells!
This Is My Beehive
Make a fist. Now curl your other hand around your fist. You made a beehive! Let’s say This Is My Beehive together.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Put some stars up into the sky and make them twinkle. Sing with Miss Navida Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

The 3 Spiders
Stick out your thumb! Stick out your finger! Put your thumb and finger together and make a spider. Join Miss Navida as she sings about The 3 Spiders!
Here’s a good song to sing when you are washing your hands or taking a bath! Scrub-a-dub-dub!
1, 2, 3 O’Leary
Hop on one foot, hop on the other foot, then turn around and go down. That’s what you do in Miss Navida’s song 1, 2, 3 O’Leary!
Leap, Leap, Change Your Feet!
A leap is when you start on one foot and then change to the other foot! Keep your knees up high for Leap, Leap Change Your Feet!
