I want to start doing a short ending meeting. I have the animal goodbyes, but wondered if anyone had something really short to use for the first week?

I have closing circle every day at the end of the day.

Short about10 minutes...we reflect on the day....share anything that needs to be brought back etc and do a goodbye.

I use a lot of my greetings for goodbyes too.

So instead of saying...goodmorning Joe and doing a handshake. WE go around the circle but say goodbye instead.

Here's a book we use (maybe it's the animal good byes you mentioned) when the kids are lined up ready to leave.
I do a closing circle too. We go around and say this rhyme: Hey, hey what do you say? ____, what did you learn in school today? Or what was your favorite thing today? Insert child's name on the line. I may ask "why" when a child says they liked math to encourage them to be more specific.
Then we pick one memory from the day that we want to write in our class book.

I like using the good morning songs as good bye songs!! My kinders would enjoy that.

Here's a song we sometimes sing (tune of "If you're happy & you know it"):
Good bye to all my fri-ends, good bye (clap, clap)
Good bye to all my fri-ends, good bye (clap, clap)
I'm so glad you came to play
on this very special day.
Good bye to all my fri-ends, good bye (clap, clap)!

Wow! I've used all of these good-bye's but never had movements to go with them. Thanks for sharing this colorful book!
