    Hello!

    I am looking for some easy good morning/bye songs to use on a daily basis in my classroom. My second grade co-op teacher had one that she sang every afternoon and the kids just loved it! (Too bad I can't remember it... =) If anyone has any that they would be willing to share, I would surely appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    what we sing...

    Hi there,

    In our class we sing the same songs each day so the kids get to learn the words and join in singing in no time.

    In the morning we sing The More We Get Together: (we also do sign language to the words as we sing)
    The more we get together, together, together
    the more we get together the happier we'll be.
    Because my friends are your friends and
    your friends are my friends.
    The more we get together the happier we'll be.

    After this verse I point to the first child sitting at circle time and say "there's __________" and he/she will sing his name " and there's ___________" continue until all names are said.


    Our goodbye song is to the tune of Coming 'Round the Mountain

    It's time to say goodbye to all our friends
    it's time to say goodbye to all our friends
    It's time to say goodbye, to give a wave
    and wink your eye. It's time to say goodbye to all our friends.

    I then sing each child's name - it's time to say goodbye to ______and _________. Etc.

    Hope these are helpful! I have found the kids love singing and it's great if you have a routine of the same songs for them to learn.

    Karen

    I don't usually do singing at my circle time--we do music and movement before circle time-- but I used to do this one

    good morning to you
    good morning to you
    It's so good to see____
    good morning to you

    this year I think I may do a couple of poems during my circle time--one is for learning left and right and one is for counting

    Thanks for all of the ideas! They were very helpful. Poems would be great to do during circle time, I love poetry and it is a fun way to get students involved with literacy and less intimidating.

    I'm doing the nursery rhyme "One Two buckle My Shoe" to help them learn to count to ten and to recognize numbers 1-10 and I'm using "left hand left hand reach up high--right hand right hand touch the sky --- left foot left foot stomp the ground --right foot right foot-- stomp---sit down!

    I do
    "good morning, good moring.
    how are you, how are you?
    very well, I thank you, very well I thank you
    How about you, how about you?

    and then I do it in Spanish after the English. Of course I can't think of the origninal song that it goes to.

    Just thought of what seems to be the "universal" pre-k song, at least in Chicago. It goes.

    Hello, Hello
    Hello and how are you?
    I'm fine, I'm fine
    And I hope that you are too.


    (course no clue on the tune to tell you it goes to).

    I sometimes do one that's a chant (because I can never remember tunes). Hi (or bye) said the fly. You toss in all those "see you later, alligator" type rhymes. Hello ones include Say hello, rainbow; What's up, buttercup; How are you, kangaroo...and Hi, said the fly. Goodbye ones include So long, King Kong; Out the door, dinosaur; Blow a kiss, jellyfish...and Bye, said the fly.

    we always start our circle time with this one

    Open, shut them
    Open, shut them
    Give a little clap, clap, clap
    Open, shut them
    Open, shut them
    Put them in your lap
    Creep them, crawl them
    Creep them, crawl them
    Right up to your chin
    Open up your little mouth
    But do not put them in

    Our Goodbye Song is:

    All day long we've worked and played, worked and played, worked and played.
    All day long we've worked and played, now our day is done.
    Wave goodbye to all your friends, all your friends, all your friends.
    Wave goodbye to all your friends, now our day is done.
    GOOOOOOOOOOODBYE!

    I think it's sung to "Mary Had a Little Lamb."

    We sing:

    Goodbye, so long, farewell my friends
    Goodbye, so long, farewell
    We'll see you soon again my friends,
    but for now, so long, farewell.

    You can also add individual names to that one if you have time by singing:
    Goodbye to name, and name, and name
    Goodbye to name, and name too
    (and so on)
    We'll see you soon again my friends,
    but for now so long, farewell.

    We also sing this if we are short on time:
    Goodbye boys, Goodbye Girls
    Goodbye everyone, we'll see you again real soon.

    There are more, but I can't remember them now...
