Old MacDonald Vowel Song


I am getting giddy!  I get to teach a first grade class for several weeks while their teacher is out on maternity leave.  The school I will be at is a year-round school, school starts on July 25th!  I have been going over some things getting ready and today I stumbled on the cutest song ever that I just had to share!
