I added the song, "Getting to Know You" from The King and I to my first week list. There is enough repetition that my new second graders can keep up. They loved following along with their own lyrics sheet. It is now in their notebook, along with "Don't Laugh at Me" (Peter Yarrow, from his children's book)from an anti-bullying lesson I did with them this week. Many "sneak" their lyrics out any chance they get! :)
