Track Name: Good Morning Song
Good morning, good morning,
Good Morning, my friend
I’m so glad to meet you again
Good morning, good morning,
Big hellos and heys
Can you tell me what’s your name?
(Wait for child to say their name)

(Ending refrain)
Good morning, good morning
I’m so glad you came
The fun, without you, would not be as great
So as we start this brand new day (hold)
I just want to say,
“Thank you for being here today!”
Track Name: You are my Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
(point to others, then circle arms over head)

You make me happy when skies are gray.

You’ll never know, dear
(shake finger and head, “NO”)

How much I love you
(spread arms far apart)

Please don’t take my sunshine away.
(circle arms over head and sway)

If You’re Happy and You Know It
Clap (stomp, shout) your hands (feet, “Yay!”)
If you’re happy and you know it
Clap (stomp, shout) your hands (feet, “Yay!”)
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your face will really show it
If you’re happy and you know it
Clap (stomp, shout) your hands (feet, “Yay!”)

Track Name: 5 Little Ducks
5 Little ducks went out one day
(Hold up 5 fingers)
Over the hills and far away
(move your hand as if going over a hill)
Mother duck said “Quack, Quack, Quack, Quack”
(make a puppet hand to say the Quack part)
And only 4 little ducks came back.
(Hold up 4 fingers)
(Each time you sing the song, decrease the number until there are none.)
Sad mother duck went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother Duck said “Quack, Quack, Quack, Quack”
And all 5 little ducks came running back!

10 little Indian boys
They jumped in the boat and the boat flip over
They jumped in the boat and the boat flip over
They jumped in the boat and the boat flip over
10 little Indian boys.
They swam, they swan, they swam to their mother…
She hug them, kiss them, put them to bed...
Track Name: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

Up above the world so high,

A circle's like a ball,
A circle's like a ball,
Round and round
It never stops.
A circle's like a ball!

A triangle has 3 sides,
A triangle has 3 sides,
Up the mountain,
Down, and back.
A triangle has 3 sides!

A square is like a box,
A square is like a box,
It has four sides,
They are the same.
A square is like a box!
