I made up a little song with an easy tune. I sing first, then they echo me as they walk in to their places. The words of the song are:

Hello there and how do you do? (echo)
It's surely good to see you! (echo)
I'm gonna do my best today. (echo)
'Cuz that's the Wiscasset Way! (echo)

I do my song with ALL grades, K-5. Sometimes 5th grade gets a little weird about it at the end of the year, but I just remind them that they have to sing it to get the note on the B# board! Works like a charm!! HEE HEE!

Good luck!
