♪ Hello, everyone how are you? ♪ So many teachers start morning meetings or greet their students with a song. It’s a great way to start the day on a positive note and get kids moving. But with COVID-19, many districts are not allowing students or teachers to sing. And during online learning, it can be difficult to focus on the teacher while singing. Make it easier on yourself, while also maintaining this fun part of learning, with these welcome songs for the classroom.
