When I start classes, I love setting the tone with a “Welcome Song” or chant. I often use these songs for Pre-K, Kinder, 1st and 2nd grade students at the beginning of a class. I am a huge fan of routine in the classroom, and I like to start class with some music-making. Singing Welcome Songs also gives students a chance to transition from their last class, check in with their emotions, get their head in the right space, and let out some of their energy! So here’s my top 5. Enjoy!
