A new year is upon us and so we gathered a list of Teacher Approved New Years Videos for Kids. Whether you are celebrating at home with your own family, or a Noon Year celebration at school when it is in session, these videos will help you set the tone! (They were hard to find too, there are not many out there!)
Happy New Year by PlayKids (2:19)
I love this little song. It talks about all the fun things the little character did during the year from traveling to learning her letters. “It took some time to learn my letters but now I am a rising start!” LOVE IT!”
I love how proud that video makes your students feel. They also feel super proud when they make and wear hats! They sort of go hand in hand!

Auld Lang Syne by Mother Goose Club (2:23)
You know the song, but here it is with a simple tune for the kids to sing. The images go through different countries and ends with the clock striking midnight with fireworks! CLICK HERE to watch it.
Auld Lang Syne by Children Love To Sing (4:02)
If you want the actual lyrics to the song, this is your best bet!
New Years Song from Kidboomers (1:25)
A little rhyme to get your kids moving and talking about the new year.
Happy New Year Song (na, na, na, na, na) by Joyce Paultre (2:20)
“The old year is out, the new year is in. Throw your hands in the air like you are in Time Square!” Love it. And it has a catchy tune the kids can catch onto quick!
Now it is time to countdown to the new year. Students will love making this countdown ball and sliding their numbers down to the new year from 20. (It’s really a great lesson in counting backward from 20!) Click here to check it out.
It’s Almost Midnight 2018 Countdown (16:29)
This is a super quick countdown from 10 to 0 followed by Auld Lang Syne (perfect for celebrating Noon Year). The whole video is all fireworks so you can play what you want and then close it down when your class has moved on.
