The More We Get Together
In a circle, the children can stand up or be sitting holding hands to sing this song. The children's name can be included throughout the song. Raffi's version is the most well known.
The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together, the happier we'll be
With Bobby and Jenny, and Sarah and James (optional)
The more we get together, the happier we'll be.
Valentine's Day Friendship SongSung to: "Row, Row, Row, your boat" :
Love, Love, Love your Friends,
Love them all year long.
Especially on Valentine's Day,
As we sing this song!
Although the lyrics are not about friendship, the activity during this song is great for a friendship theme. The teacher needs to find different color scarves and tie into a big train. Then in a circle, the scarf train will come out of the box. The children must work together to gently pass the tied up scarves through their hands, until it makes a full circle and everyone is holding onto the rainbow chain. While this activity is occurring, the teacher and children can sing or listen to the "Rainbow Song:" The following youtube version is a little slow. I suggest speeding up the tempo with young children and the scarf activity.
