Waving Song



Materials:

None



Instructions:

1. This is both a hello and a good-bye song. The best part of the song is the waving. Encourage the children to wave a different way each time another verse is sung. It invites participation and stimulates creativity.

Oh, It's Time to Say Hello to My Friends
(Tune: "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain")
Oh, it's time to say hello to my friends. Hi there!
Oh, it's time to say hello to my friends. Hi there!
Oh, it's time to say hello, it's time to say hello,
It's time to say hello to my friends. Hi there!

2. Some examples of wave variations are to wave with an elbow, one finger, an ear, a foot, eyelashes, and two hands. They can wave their hands like windshield wipers, like they are shy, or like a baby.
3. There is no limit to the kinds of waves that the children will demonstrate. Just ask them, "What's your idea?"
