Here are a few more ideas for a class program.

The Very Hungry Class
This is a take off on "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."  Choose a song, finger play, or poem that you’ve used for every month in the school year.  It will bring back fond memories for your students and will be an easy program to put together for the parents.  It might go something like this:

When school started we had a very hungry class eager to learn.
In September we learned our rules -THE RULES RAP.
In October we learned the days of the week – DAYS OF THE WEEK.
November was when we said our letters and sounds – ALPHARDY.
In December we learned the months in the year – MACARENA MONTHS.
January was our Hundreds Day Celebration – ZERO THE HERO STOMP.
In February we learned about money – THE MONEY SONG.
March was time to learn to spell – COLOR FARM.
In April we learned to recycle – REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.
May was a time to study (plants, dinosaurs, caterpillars, or another song that reflects your standards).
Now, before we say good-bye,
We’ll sing our favorite song for you.
Please stand up and join along
And you can learn to “Tooty Ta”, too!  (The audience stands up and does the “Tooty Ta” with you.)

Author's Tea
After writing and editing original stories, invite parents to a party where each child gets to share her book and read a few pages.

We Like to Move It!
Invite parents to wear sports clothes and join in as the children lead different exercises and movement songs.
Hey, we like to move it, too!!!  I had a great time last Saturday at 
the College of Central Florida.  Here's our "attitude" shot!
