I Like to Come to School
(Tune:  “Farmer in the Dell”)
I like to come to school.
I like to come to school.
I like to learn and play each day
I like to come to school.

I like to make new friends…  (Find a friend and hold their hand.)
I like to read and write…         (Pretend to read a book.)
I like to do math…                  (Pretend to count on fingers.)
I like to sing and draw…         (Pretend to draw.)

*Let children make up additional verses for the above song about what they like best at school. 
*Make a language experience chart with each child's name and why they like to come to school.

We Like School
Ask each child to draw a picture of what they like best.  (For younger children, photograph them in their favorite area of the classroom.)  Put their pictures together to make a book called “We Like School.”  Read it each morning to create positive feelings about school.
