The Goodbye Song

 

Having a goodbye song at the end of the session is essential. Here's why:

  • It's a way of saying goodbye to each child

  • It wraps up the session, giving the session a clear beginning and end. The children know that they are expected to stay involved until the goodbye song.

  • The moment of focus before or after the song is a good time to get any messages across to the children. (How it went, what you want them to do next time, etc)

  • It leaves the group with confident energy, they know the song and can sing it well.

  • It's fun!
