Social and Emotional Development/Friendship
Concepts children can learn:
1. Through friendly gestures and movements involving group interaction, children are encouraged to introduce themselves to each other.
2. Movements include: shaking hands during each chorus, waving to each other, holding hands and swaying together, singing (La, La, La) and clapping.
3. This song can be used to introduce children to each other on the first day of school or to reinforce a positive expression of friendship anytime.
“Special Friends” Lyrics:
When you’re meeting someone new. Shake their hand say, “How do you do?” Say hello, shake a hand, make a friend.
If you should see a friend today, wave a hand cause it’s the way to say hello, wave a hand, make a friend.
I want to be your friend, a special friend and shake your hand. I want to be your friend, a special friend and shake your hand.
Let’s all hold hands and sway as one. We’re making friends, it’s lots of fun. Say hello, hold¬ing hands, make a friend.
Sing together la, la, la – la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la. Say hello, la, la, la, make a friend.
Clap your hands and feel the beat. Cause making friends is really neat. Say hello, clap along, make a friend.
So when you’re meeting someone new, shake their hand say, “How do you do?” Say hello, shake a hand, make a friend.
