I like to teach 1st and 2nd grade "Baby shark." They think it's hilarious, there are many versions, but I usually do
Baby Shark, Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Granny/Grandpa Shark, Shark Attack, Happy Shark for 1st grade. You can add more parts like "Going swimming, see a shark, swimming fast, shark attack, lost a leg, happy shark." They think it's hilarious. 

This is a slow version with a lot of versus, but the video makes it easy to understand

I wouldn't show this, but if you haven't heard it it's a clear version

My Family and Me

Fun song, words are advanced for 1st grade, but they like the animation and you can ask them what family members they see.

Silly song making a family of fingers, you could turn this into a project and have them trace their hand and draw family members.
