There are lots of good resources out there for Orthodox Sunday School teachers and Youth Directors, many of which we are unaware of.

I just wanted to share a few fun songs for those of you who either home-school your children, who teach Sunday school, or are youth directors at your parish.

Kh. Gigi Shadid has a lot of good material for kids. I'd consider her CD, "Celebrate the Feasts" to be the best, but "The ABC's of Orthodox" and "Fruits of the Spirit" are also good!

You can get her CD's digitally on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/gigi-baba-shadid/id484810205
Or physical copies from SVS press:

Here's a few of her YouTube videos with her songs and the fun little dances for kids that go with them:
