Mrs. Morrison’s Back to School Chant 2020

We stand apart. (jump)

We stand apart, apart now.

We stand apart. (clap)

We stand apart.  (yah!)

 

6 feet distance keeps us safe, 

from germs that linger when we respirate.

It doesn’t feel friendly, it seems kind of odd.

We’re doing it now to protect our pod.

 

We stand apart. (jump)

We stand apart, apart now.

We stand apart. (clap)

We stand apart.  (yah!)

 

Wear your mask and wash your hands.

20 seconds in this land.

1, 2, 3, 4, ……..20!    (count to ten in Spanish!)

 

We stand apart. (jump)

We stand apart, apart now.

We stand apart. (clap)

We stand apart.  (yah!)
