I know you'll always remember when you ran circles around "your" teacher while on "recess duty" continuely saying, "Am I bugging you yet?"
Well, now that you've graduated, turn about is fair play! Here are two songs dedicated especially for all my little "buggers!"

[Click on the left-hand side of the black bar approx. 1/4 inch in to hear music; click it again to stop the music]

I Know a song that Gets on Everybody's Nerves

This is the Song that Never Ends

[Click on the left-hand side of the black bar approx. 1/4 inch in to hear music; click it again to stop the music]
The Song That Ends
Oh it's the song that ends right now,
So people don't you have a cow,
Some people stopped singin' it,
Cause they knew what it was,
And they will stop singin' it forever just because...(goes on and on)

Yes, go ahead, put a banana in your ear (phone) because I have a banana phone also, metaphorically speaking, that is!
A teacher cares about her students' success and happiness as well as their "growing pains of life," not just for a year, but always!

Grade School Activities that I liked to do with my friends when I was your age...try them out before you get too grown up!
HAND CLAPPING GAMES

When you say "Short legged" you make a short distance between your hands.
When you say "Long legged" you make a longer distance between your hands.
When you say"Knock-kneed" you touch your elbows together.

JUMP ROPE GAMES
#1
DUM DUM DODO
(Recess Activities)
Verse:
"Dum dum dodo catch me if you can, I can run faster than (name of another person) can."
The verse is sung and then the person enters the rope and picks someone else.
#2
"School, School the golden rule, spell your name and go to school" The person spells their name out loud and then runs out without touching rope. Then each subsequent turn, the person jumps through the grades. Kindergarten--the person just runs though the turning rope; First Grade--the person jumps once, saying "first grade" then runs out; and so on, through the 12th grade. The persons turn ends when she has tripped on the rope at any time, or when completed through the 12th grade.

CHANTS

We are 4th graders
Mighty, mighty 4th graders
Everywhere we go
People want to know
Who we are, so we tell them
(Repeat verses until you get tired and quit)

[Substitute your last name when with family]
