Preschool Songs About Sharing and Helping Others

For our last storytime before the holidays, I was planning a preschool storytime about sharing and helping others. I couldn't find many songs that went along with this theme, so I improvised a couple of my own. I thought others might find these songs helpful as well, so here they are!



"It's Time to Share"

*Sing to the tune of "She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain" and use ASL signs for the words "time," "share," and "friends." (ASLpro.com has a great video dictionary here)

Oh, it's time to share our toys with our friends
Oh, it's time to share our toys with our friends
Oh, it's time to share our toys
Oh, it's time to share our toys
Oh, it's time to share our toys with our friends


"Clean Up, Help Out, Be Nice"

*Sing to the tune of the original "Clean Up" song from the Barney TV show (which you can watch on YouTube if you need a reminder).

Clean up, clean up (getsure cleaning up or use ASL sign for "clean")
Everybody everywhere (spread arms to show "everybody")
Clean up, clean up (gesture cleaning up)
Everybody do your share (point to each child)

Help out, help out (gesture helping or use ASL sign for "help")
Everybody everywhere
Help out, help out
Everybody do your share

Be nice, be nice (point to smile or use ASL sign for "nice")
Everybody everywhere
Be nice, be nice
Everybody do your share


Hope you enjoy these songs!
