Any suggestions for a poem or song that our first graders can perform at our principal's retirement assembly?

Our first graders sang You Are My Sunshine for our retiring principal last year. She'd been at our school for 20 plus years.

performed hand signs to "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong when our principal retired. They also painted poster size pictures to illustrate each phrase in the song. Two children stood with a chair in center stage. All the posters lay flat on the chair and they lifted each picture in time to the song. The rest of the kids stood in semi-circle formation around them. It was very touching.

My teaching partner and I simply looked in a signing book to find the hand signs. Not every word is necessarily represented when you sign a song. For instance, in the first line, "I see trees of green" you could more simply sign "I see trees."


Best wishes!
