Several years ago when I visited a classroom the children broke into this song to the tune of “Where Is Thumbkin?”  It tickled me to death, and I know visitors to your classroom would feel the same way.

Welcome to our room.               (Open arms.)
Welcome to our room.
Welcome visitor’s name.            (Wave hand.)
Welcome visitor’s name.
We’re so glad to see you.          (Clap hands.)
We’re so glad to see you.
Welcome visitor’s name.            (Open arms.)
Welcome visitor’s name.

After singing to your visitor give them an eye hug by smiling, closing your eyes, wrapping your arms around your body, and giving a shrug with your shoulders.

Thank You Song

Sing and sign this song to thank volunteers or visitors.  It goes to the tune of “Happy Birthday.”

                   We   (Make “w” and circle around.)
                  Say (Index fingers by lips and move out.)
                  Thank you  (Fingertips on chin and extend out.)
                  To.  (Touch index fingertips.)
                  You.   (Point.)
                  (Repeat twice)
                  We say thank you 
                  For helping  (Open left palm and place right fist on it and bring up.)
                  We say thank you to you!
