Summer is here!

It's officially the first day of summer!!!
I'm posting an old song that's one of my "go to" songs for the summer season.

The repetitive chorus ("It's hot, hot, hot!"), is an easy one that kids can quickly learn.  It's also an easy one to sing into and record onto a BigMac, or any voice output device, for students who are nonverbal.  In most sessions, I cue the kids to sing this part by themselves.  I have pictures of all the items mentioned in the song and the kids love labeling each picture as we sing the song.
A couple of years (and many sessions ago),  I quickly learned that anytime you incorporate food within songs it's a definite win with the kids (and most adults too!) :)  So, I purposely included popsicles and ice cream in this song too.

What other songs do you sing in the summer?
I hope you are having a great summer so far.
