    My students start next week. I am looking for a song to sing each day to start our day. If you do this could you list the words OR if it is on a cd let me know the cd its on?


    Thank you :)

    Mine is very very easy! The toddler teacher uses it too.

    Good Moring dear ___________
    Good Moring to you.

    We go around the circle saying good moring to each other. When we get to the end we say really loud. Good moring dear EVERYBODY good morning to you.

    Dr. Jean has a cute one called "Hello Neighbor." It's on her Keep on Singing and Dancing CD. "Shake a Hand" from her Kiss Your Brain CD is also good.

    I use: Good morning to you.
    Good morning to you,
    Good morning everybody,
    Good morning to you.
    Can also add: I'm glad that you're here ( "I'm" could be "We're")
    I'm glad that you're here
    Good morning everybody
    I'm glad that you're here

    I also like: The more we get together

    I have all their names on a chart and we sing as I am pointing to the names. Let's say hello to ________,let's say hello to ______________ let's say hello to _____________ we're glad you're here today. Rather than repeating the same name 3 times I go to the next name to speed things up. We started the last week in August and I already have a couple who know all the names and others who know most. I have a Rachel and a Raquel and the all know to look for the c or the q. Names are so powerful - its fun watching everything they learn from them.

    This may seem reduntant, but it's the one I've used for years.

    Oh, here we are together, together, together.
    Oh, here we are together in our preschool class.
    There's ____________ and ___________ and _____________ (etc.)
    Oh, here are are together in our preschool class.

    My groups are small so this is very quick. I like it 'cause it gives each child a chance to have the spotlight on them--if only for a second.

    we sing:

    Everyone's here today! Everyone's here today!
    Let's all clap our hands and say
    Hip, hip, hurray!

    John is here today! John is here today!
    Let's all clap our hands and say
    Hip, hip, hurray!

    Jane is here today! Jane is here today!
    Let's all clap our hands and say
    Hip, hip, hurray!

    Continue singing with each child's name as an individual verse. I have 9 kids so it really doesn't take that long and they just love to hear their own name and have every body clap for them.

    I use the one from a Greg & Steve CD:
    "Good morning, good morning, good morning to you
    Good morning, good morning, good morning to you
    Our day is beginning, there's so much to do
    Good morning, good morning, good morning to you"

    At the beginning of the year I did another one for awhile:
    "Good morning preschool friends, how are you (clap clap)
    Good morning preschool friends, how are you (clap clap)
    It is time to start our day, we will learn and work and play
    Good morning preschool friends, how are you (clap clap)"

    I like this one which gives each child the spotlight for a moment and also reinforces them to pay attention (somewhat):
    "Where is _____, Where is (same),
    Here he/she is, here he/she is.
    How are you today ____, Very well we hope (same).
    We're glad you're here."
    To the tune of "Where is Thumbkin"

    I do a similar version of that the first few weeks:

    Where is Emma, Where is Emma (me)
    Here I am, Here I am (she)
    How are you today Emma (me)
    Very well, thank you (she)
    Yes indeed, yes indeed (everyone)

    We call it our morning greeting, and it goes like this...
    "Howdy neighbor (wave your hand high)
    What do you say? (shake your neighbor's hand)
    It's going to be a beautiful day (make a circle with your hands for sunshine)
    So clap your hands (clap)
    and stomp your feet (stomp)
    jump up and down
    now take a seat."
    They are seated once the morning greeting is over with, and they know it is time to begin!

    I TOTALLY forgot that one!! LOVE it, I think I used it once ages ago. Learned it at a conference or something. Funny how you start to forget that stuff and then someone brings it up and you say.... OH YEAH!!
