    RE: Preschool music class.

    I’ve put a song to Eric Carle’s “Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear” to use with my little ones. With each new animal on each new page, the children can make the sound of the animal. I’m fine with tiger and elephant but have no idea what a FLAMINGO or HIPPOPATAMUS sound like!
    So I’m wondering if there is any place on the internet I could download an auditory file of animal sounds? I don’t even know how to do a search like that? (I only know how to search for text.)
    At first I thought it would be for me to listen to to know how to do the animal. But then I decided it’d be great to have the children hear the animals. Then they can do their own thing.

    If there is something I can download–I would like to transfer it to a CD. I’d appreciate any tips or advice. Thanks, friends!

    What a great idea! You can go on iTunes and type in animal sounds and quite a few come up. You can just download them for a fee from there. I am sure there are other audio sites, but I am most familiar with iTunes. Download iTunes to your computer. Then go into iTunes and you can enter the store. Then you can do a search for animal sounds and click “buy” if you are interested in purchasing them.

    You can also use YouTube. You cannot take these and put them on a CD but you can get them on your computer. If you go this route, you would first have to download “RealPlayer” which is a software for free video downloads (there might be other video downloads out there but this is the one I am familiar with). Once you download that software and you find the video on YouTube that you like and a little pop-up window will come up right above the top right hand part of the video image that will say, “Download this video.” Once you click there it will put it into your “videos” file on your computer. Getting it to a CD from that point would be a challenge.

    Good luck!

    Wondershare has a downloader that will convert youtube to an audio file. http://www.wondershare.com/pro/youtube-downloader.html the free version will allow you to download, but not to convert. I use it with the convert function all the time. I will download a video and convert so that it will go into my powerpoints or into I Tunes.
