One day I just started singing a chant that I made up. The kids echoed me. I sang softer and softer and so did they. We ended up so soft that we were only moving our lips. The kids request this chant every day. Below are the words I use. But making up your own would be fun!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Song/Chant
Hey, Hey - kids repeat

Chicka, Chicka Boom bah- kids repeat.
We're lining up quietly- kids repeat.

Chicka, Chicka, Boom bah.
We're ready to go home now.

Chicka, Chicka, Boom bah

Just keep going as long as you need. I make the verses up as I go along.
