Songs For September

  • Cut

    Tune:  Brother John

    Open and shut  Open and shut

    That’s the way we cut  That’s the way we cut

    Our fingers are on the bottom  Our fingers are on the bottom

    Our thumb is on the top  Our thumb is on the top

    Cut, cut, cut    Cut, cut, cut

  • Writing Song

    Tune: London Bridge

    Top to bottom left to right

    Left to right left to right

    Top to bottom left to right

    This is how we write

  • Families

    Tune: Who Stole the Cookie…

    Who has a family, has a family, has a family?

    Who has a family?  Now it’s ___turn.

    I have a family, have a family, have a family.

    I have a family and I love them all!

  • Three Billy Goats Gruff

    Tune: Wheels on the Bus

    The first little goat went trip, trip, trap

    (say this quietly and move your hands minimally)

    Trip, trip, trap trip, trip, trap

    The first little goat went trip, trip, trap

    On the mean troll’s bridge

     

    The second middle goat went trip, trip, trap

    (say this using a louder voice and use bigger movements)

    Trip, trip, trap        trip, trip, trap

     

    The third BIG goat went TRIP, TRIP, TRAP

    (say this as loudly as you can and use huge movements)

    TRIP, TRIP, TRAP TRIP, TRIP, TRAP

    The third big goat went TRIP, TRIP, TRAP

    And bumped the mean old troll!

    (use your head as if you are bumping the troll off the bridge!)

There are two songs this month that will help your students learn how to cut and write. Remember to use natural movements to enhance the songs. For the writing song, we would have the students use their right arm and move it according to the words. There are two more songs that will be published later this month: one for social studies and the other for story time. Enjoy!
