First Grade, First Grade!
Tune: New York, New York
Start spreading the news
We're leaving today.
We want to be a part of
First grade, first grade

We've worked very hard
Our teacher is proud.
So open up those doors to
First grade, first grade.

We know our alphabet
And numbers too.
We all can write our names
And tie our shoes!

So when summer's done
And we're finished with play
Our mom's will send us to
First grade, first grade.

If we can make it here
We'll make it anywhere,
So here we come
First grade, first grade.

Circle of Friends

We’ve joined together as classmates
as the new year begins...
A year full of learning
while we become friends.
We’ll share and be kind
as we work and we play.
And our friendship will grow
with each passing day.

First Grade

First grade's where I want to be
Learn to read and write each day
Boys and girls we like to know
Sharing books with you and me
Now it's time to say good-bye
First grade's where I want to be!

Everybody Has A Name

Has a name.
Some are different,
Some, the same.
Some are short,
Some are long.
All are right,
None are wrong.
My name is ___________.
It's special to me.
It's exactly who
I want to be!


There's no one in
This whole wide world
Exactly just like me.
I am me and
You are you,
We're special,
Don't you see?

I Am Special

I am special,
I am special,
Yes I am,
Yes I am.
There is no one like me,
There is no one like me,
I'm unique,
I'm unique!
Tune : "Are You Sleeping?"

About Me

I am me. I may be small,
But someday I know I'll be tall.
I may not be like all the rest,
But I think being ME is the best!
I like my eyes. I like my face!
I like each hair of mine in place!
I like who I am.
I like being me.
For I'm somebody SPECIAL...
There's no one like me!
~ Shirley C. Granahan

My School Promise

Each day I'll do my best
And I won't do any less.
My work will always please me,
And I won't accept a mess.
I'll color very carefully,
My writing will be neat.
And I will not be happy,
Till my papers are complete.
I'll always do my homework,
And try my best on every test.
I won't forget my promise,
To do my very best!

Good Morning

Good morning, good morning!
School has begun.
Good morning, good morning!
Isn't it fun!
Pencils and crayons
Scissors and glue
Erasers and paper
Reading books, too.
Good morning, good morning!
School has begun.
Good morning, good morning!
Isn't it fun!

Good Morning Boogie

Hello Neighbor, what do you say?
(Children bow to each other)
It's going to be a happy day.
(Children clap hands together)
So greet your neighbor,
(Children give each other high fives)
And boogie on down.
(Children wiggle their hips)
Give 'em a bump,
(Children bump their hips together)
and turn around.
(Children turn around)

School Song
Tune: "The Wheels on the Bus"

The name of my school is (school name), (school name), (school name).
The name of my school is (school name).
That's the name of my school.

Additional Verses:
The name of my teacher is . . .
The name of my principal is . . .

School Poem

Today I hurry off to school,
To work and learn and play
I'm in a brand new grade this year.
What a happy day!!
