Sing Along!

I spotted a great idea years ago for helping kids learn the names of important people in the building (me, principal, secretary, music teacher, PE teacher, librarian, etc.), which I think is an important part of building a community.  We sing about them to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus."  (Music is such a great tool for learning, and we sing a lot in our room.)  Their pictures and the words to the song then go into a book.  Over the years, the book has evolved into much more than that.  Now we also sing about the name of our school, town, capital, state, country, and president.  It's a great social studies tool.  Here are just a few pictures.  You know the tune.  Sing along.

Pin It!
