A Little Song About Names

My kids aren't often required to turn in papers, but when they do, there's always a possibility one or two or three could find their way to me without a name.  This little song helps remedy that problem.  It's also a useful management tool, because they know their names need to be written before we finish singing it.  I'm all about streamlining transitions!  (I apologize.  I don't know where I found this song.)


Here are the words just in case you didn't catch them all and would like to make this part of your classroom routine.

Happy singing!

  2. I do something kind of like that and my son (a 5th grader at the time came up with the words for me). It is to the same tune "If You're Happy and You Know It."
    It goes like this:
    Put your name on your paper, first grade.
    Put your name on your paper, first grade.
    Put your name on your paper, so I'll know which one is yours.
    Put your name on your paper, first grade.

    It works every time!

  3. Great way to get the students to write down their names! Why is that so hard for some of them to remember? :)
