Let's try singing our songs with some new flare. Here's some suggestions:
FUN TO DO (CS 253)
Try different variations of the song:
- "Singing to you is fun to do"
- "Welcoming you is fun to do"
- "Having you here is great today, great today, great we say! Having you here is great today. It's great today, we say!
OUR DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN (CS 254)
Divide the children up into 2 or 3 sections. With the words to the song written on word cards or a poster, have the children sing the song through together then repeat sing it in a round.
HELLO SONG (CS 260)
(adapted from Primary Openhouse)
Sing the song substituting the word "Hello" in other languages with the English word. For example:
Hola! - Spanish
Bonjour! - French
Shalom - Jewish (Hebrew)
Howdy - Texan
Aloha - Hawaiian
(sounds like "Vee- gates") - German
(sounds like "Nee how") - Japanese
Don't forget to share the international sign of friendship- a SMILE!
HERE WE ARE TOGETHER (CS 261)

Substitute the following words:
for family- substitute "primary"
for the fill in the name areas substitute "new", "old", "your", "my"
