Christmas Songs

Here are some songs on the true meaning of Christmas.

The Baby in the Manger (tune of "Wheels on the Bus)
The cow in the manger went moo-moo-moo,
Moo-moo-moo, moo-moo-moo,
The cow in the manger went moo-moo-moo,
All through the night.

The hay on the ground went crunch-crunch-crunch,
Crunch-crunch-crunch, crunch-crunch-crunch,
The hay on the ground went crunch-crunch-crunch,
All through the night.

The baby in the manger went waa-waa-waa,
Waa-waa-waa, waa-waa-waa,
The baby in the manger went waa-waa-waa,
All through the night.

His mother Mary went shh-shh-shh,
Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh,
His mother Mary went shh-shh-shh,
All through the night

Because the angle told them.

The three wise men brought him gifts.
Frankincense, gold and myrrh.

She named the baby Jesus, Cause God told her to.
Cause God told her to, Cause God told her to,
She named the baby Jesus, Cause God told her to.

The wise men brought him presents
Gold, Frankincense, and myrrh.

Behavior Management Motivators

   1.  Tried and true:  “I like how Henry is sitting quietly”    2.  Scoreboard:  Tallies for different groups, boys and girls, teacher vs. student, table groups.  I did this all last year and it was not even for a prize.  Kids love competition!    3.  Token economy:  Give the class a cotton ball or marble in a jar for when they are following the rules or getting their work done.    4.  Special Friend:  Have a special animal the student gets to sit with if they do an awesome job.  The special friend will only sit with a quiet friend.    5.  Special Something:  Special sticker, stamp or candy (it works) for those who are following directions.    6.  Selfies:  Take a video or picture (or pretend to).  Tell them you might send this to their parents so they need to be on their best behavior!    7.  Super Spot:  Draw a smiley face or use scented lip balm to make a spot.    8.  Mystery Student:  Pick a random student to watch for good behavior.  Pi
