I’ll admit it: I was one of those kids who LOVED going back to school. Picking out school supplies, planning my outfits, even getting my first homework assignments of the year…I looked forward to all of it.
However, I know full well that LOTS of kids aren’t nearly as enthusiastic as I was about the beginning of a new school year. The positive, upbeat nature of this song is meant to give a little bit of a boost to those students for whom going off to school is more difficult.
When I use this song in a group setting, it’s a great conversation starter for talking about how students get to school, whether they bring or buy their lunch, and their favorite subjects. I hope YOU can make good use out of it in this back-to-school season, too!
