I Like to Go to School

I learned this song about four years ago when I started teaching preschool. In my opinion, this song helps children settle in quicker since they're singing about what a good time they have while they're at school. If ever I saw that someone was a little sad or seemed like they didn't want to be at school, this song would usually cheer them up. Enjoy!

I Like to Go to School
Tune of The Farmer in the Dell

I like to go to school. I like to go to school.
Hi-ho the derry-o. I like to go to school.

2. I like to play with friends.
3. I like to sing new songs.

There are many other verses that you could make up to go with this. You could sing, "I like to play outside". My 4-year-old has started making up her own verses such as "I like to eat breakfast", "I like to eat lunch". There are many possibilities.

Great song that I can see as being quite useful. We make up songs all the time. :)

this was tooooo cute!

we started a mommy and me preschool co-op group, my son ran in the room, sat down at the lego table and began right away.

i was on the sidelines with tears hoping he would miss me or throw a fit or something. but, NOPE! zilch nada! :)
