Song Lyrics on Behavioral Skills


Those who wish to sing always find a song.  ~Proverb





I HAVE A HAPPY FACE

Tune: “I’m A Little Teapot” 

I have a happy face,
Just watch me grin.
I have a great big smile
From my forehead to my chin. When I’m upset
And things are bad,
Then my happy face
Turns to sad.
Jean Warren
(Let your children sing this song as they first make a happy face and then a sad one at the end.)

FEELINGS

Sometimes on my face, you’ll see,  (point to chest)
How I feel inside of me. (point to face)
A smile means happy, (smile)
A frown means sad. (frown)
And gritting teeth, means I’m mad. (grit teeth)
When I’m proud, I beam and glow, (smile)
But when I’m shy, my head hangs low. (Bow head)

IF YOU’RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT

Tune: “If You’re Happy And You Know It” If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, your face will surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
Traditional
Make up additional verses with other feelings; such as; If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet, or If you’re scared and 
you know it, hide your eyes.

S-H-A-R-E

Character Education Song Lyrics and Sound Clip Music with Mar. 


Share with me. I’ll share with you.
Sharing seems like a cool thing to do.
I’ll share with you. You share with me.
We can S-H-A-R-E!

My mom made oatmeal cookies. She made a lot.
She said give some to your friends.
Share what you’ve got.
We shouldn’t share a drink
But we can share time and space.
And we can share the smiles upon each other’s face.

Sometimes when I have a toy.
I’m not ready to let others play.
I should take that toy and keep it away.
There are things I like to share and things just for me
That’s ok. Be sure to share yourself and be friendly.

Showing Respect – That’s the Key 
Song from the Conflict Resolution Musical Ben Stiefel 

chorus 1
Showing respect
That's the key
To conflict resolution between you and me

I'll respect you
If you'll respect me
'Cause showing respect, whoa-oh yeah
That's the key

chorus 2
Understand you
Understand me
We can solve our problems, it's not hard to see

When I respect you
And you respect me
We're showing respect, whoa-oh yeah
That's the key

When there's no respect between us
It's oh so hard to get along
But when there's great respect between us
We'll try to do what's right
(clap clap clap)
Not wrong
(repeat chorus 1)

Let's all make a pledge each day
To be more understanding, yeah
But promise to respect each other
It's time to show the world
(clap clap clap)
We care!
(repeat chorus 1)

That's the key
That's the key
That's the key
That's the key

Respect!

The Thankful Song 
Song for Thanking Teachers Marilyn M. Linford 

Today I thought of many things 
That I was thankful for.
I thought of home and family, 
And then I thought some more.

I thought about the people 
Who loved and nurtured me.
And when I started thinking, 
It was very plain to see.

It wasn't only family 
That helped me in my quest,
But all the teachers in my life 
That helped me do my best.

This song is dedicated 
To teachers everywhere,
Who help us do the best we can, 
We know they really care.
So we want to say thank you, thank you to you.
Thank you dear teacher, for all that you do.

Helping Hand 
by Gemini 

Reach down, a little deeper.
Reach up, a little higher.
Reach out a little wider.
And give someone a helping hand -
Let's work together now. 

Give someone a helping hand.
Are your hands ready? Yes, yes.
Are your fingers ready? Yes, yes.
Are your arms ready? Yes, yes. 
Well, then give someone a helping hand -
Let's work together now. 

Give someone a helping hand.
Are your feet / toes / legs ... 
Is your neck / shoulders / back ...
Is your voice / mind / heart ...

Who I am Makes a Difference  
Song for Teaching About Responsibility by Linda K. Williams


Who I am makes a difference,
What I do makes a difference,
What I say makes a difference,
Each and every day.

Who I am makes a difference,
What I do makes a difference,
What I say makes a difference,
And the same is true for you.

Who you are makes a difference,
What you do makes a difference,
What you say makes a difference,
Each and every day.

Who you are makes a difference,
What you do makes a difference,
What you say makes a difference,
And the same is true for us.

Who we are makes a difference,
What we do makes a difference,
What we say makes a difference,
Each and every day.

Who we are makes a difference,
What we do makes a difference,
What we say makes a difference,
Yes, I know it's true.
