Circle Time Songs

Circle time or morning meeting is common in a lot of different classrooms. To make it more interesting, you can sing these piggyback songs with the kids. I learned them in a SEDOM Autism classroom, where they were posted with Boardmaker symbols on the walls, but Boardmaker is a luxury I can’t afford.

Greeting Song (sing for each student)
(to the tune of Frere Jacque)
Hello (student), hello (student)!
How are you? How are you?
We’re so glad to see you!
We’re so glad to see you!
Here at school! Here at school!

Days of the Week
(to the tune of The Addams Family)

Days of the week (clap, clap)
Days of the week (clap, clap)
Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week.

There’s Sunday and there’s Monday,
There’s Tuesday and there’s Wednesday.
There’s Thursday and there’s Friday.
And then there’s Saturday.

Days of the week (clap, clap)
Days of the week (clap, clap)
Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week.

Weather Song
(to the tune of Clementine)

What’s the weather, what’s the weather,
What’s the weather everyone?
Is it rainy, is it cloudy?
Is there snow or is there sun?

Season Song
(to the tune of This Old Man)

Winter, spring, summer, fall.
There are seasons four in all.
Weather changes.
Sun, and rain, and snow.
Leaves fall down and flowers grow.


Jump Jump (sung for each student at the end of the day)
(to the tune of B-I-N-G-O)
There were some friends at school today,
And one of them was (student)
Jump! Jump, (student)!
Jump! Jump, (student)!
Jump! Jump, (student)!
We’re glad you came today!
Update: Dr. Jean seems to be the source of many of these songs, so I want to give her credit. She’s a wonderful resource for early childhood teachers.
