HELLO AND GOODBYE SONGS
 
WELCOME EVERYONE
Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
 
Welcome, welcome, everyone.
It is time to have some fun.
First we'll put our coats away
Then we'll start our busy day.
Welcome, welcome, everyone.
I'm so glad that you have come!
Jean Warren

MARY'S HERE TODAY

Tune: "The Farmer In The Dell"
 
Mary's here today, Mary's here today.
Let's all clap our hands and say.
Hip, hip hurray!

Continue singing about other children as they join the group.
 
HELLO CHANT
Hello, Hello
How are you today?
Hello, Hello
Won't you come and play.

For an international flavor, you can also chant this in other languages
Maybe chant a new one each week. Substitute the words for "hello" in the chant.
Such as:

French - Bon jour, Bon jour (bon - jhur)
Spanish - Hola, Hola (oh-la)
German - Guten tag, Guten tag (goo-ten-tog)
Italian - Ciao, Ciao (chee -ow)
Chinese - Nihao, Nihao (nee-how)
Japanese - Konnichiwa, Konnichiwa (koh-nee-chee-wah)
Vietnamese - Chao, Chao (chow)
Hebrew - Shalom, Shalom (sha-lome)
Arabic - Marhba, Marhba (hah-bah)
Korean - Annung, Annung (ahn noyong)

 
TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

Tune: "Up On The House Top"
 
Now is the time to say goodbye.
My how fast the time did fly.
Our day is done, so we must say,
"Goodbye, goodbye for today".

Ho, Ho, Ho - time to go.
He, He, He - wave like me.
Now it is time to say, "Goodbye".
Grab your things and off you fly!
Jean Warren

 
UNTIL ANOTHER DAY
Tune: " The Farmer In The Dell"
 
 Now our day is done.
We've had a lot of fun.
It's time to go
So don't be slow
Goodbye to everyone.
Put your things away,
It's time for us to say,
"Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye,"
Until another day.
Jean Warren
 
NOW OUR DAY IS DONE

Tune: "Mary Had A Little Lamb"
 
All day long we worked and played,
Worked and played, worked and played.
All day long we worked and played,
Now our day is done.
Wave goodbye, to all your friends,
All your friends, all your friends,
Wave goodbye, to all your friends.
Until we meet again.
Jean Warren
