Song (Tune: "Good Night, Ladies")
Hello child's name.
We're glad you're in our room.
Make a "Singing Friends Book" to go along with this song. Take a
picture of each child (or let them draw their picture). Fill their
name in on the above verse and attach it to the page with their
picture. Put their pictures together to make a book and run off
a copy for each child. Start each day by "reading and singing" along.
Let children take their books home after several weeks and share
them with their families.
(Clap or snap to the beat.)
