I'm an occasional substitute teacher and on Thursday I am subbing for an elementary school music teacher. I've got free reign on the K-3rd graders and she asked me specifically to bring in my uke and tell them about it and lead some sing-alongs.

I wondered if anyone had suggestions for easy uke-friendly songs to teach them?

I appreciate any ideas, thank you.

If you think old-fashioned songs would work, Dr. Uke has got some simple sing-along-type songs on his Beginner's page (http://www.doctoruke.com/beginners.html).

Sub teacher here for over 30 years. Loved singing itsy bitsy spider, Wheels on the bus go round and round. The teacher has a book of songs I'm sure. Yeah, the kids will love seeing your uke.

Found this site....one of best for young kids I've seen. No uke fretboard charts, but chords are chords.

The Halifax gang has a nice campfire songbook that might have a couple songs you can use
