Social Emotional Learning are very important skills that we work to develop here at Woodside School.

These songs are to help us remember the definitions and teach us how we can use these skills everyday.

Know Yourself (self-awareness)
Choose Yourself (self-management)
Give Yourself (relationship skills/giving back) 

 

Woodside School Song 
Wildcats we sing to thee
Woodside is the place to be
We will share our hearts and minds
We will cheer for Woodside
Loyalty to Red and White
Loyalty to Red and White

 

WES CHANT
Hey! Get ready!
To be blown away.
Woodside School is here
And we're going all the way.
Ingenuity, empathy, and hope
We're headed for the top.
Resiliency to cope.
WILD CATS can't be stopped!

 

SEE ME BEAUTIFUL
See me beautiful
Look for the best in me
It's what I really am
And all I want to be
It may take some time
It may be hard to find
But see me beautiful
See me beautiful
Each and every day
Could you take a chance
Could you find a way
To see me shining through
In everything I do
And see me beautiful

 

I THINK YOU’RE WONDERFUL

I think you're wonderful
When somebody says that to me
I feel wonderful, as wonderful can be
It makes me wanna say the same thing to somebody new
And by the way I've been meaning to say
I think you're wonderful, too

When we practice this phrase in the most honest way
And find something special in someone each day
We'll lift up the world one heart at a time
It all starts by saying this one simple line

I think you're wonderful
When somebody says that to me
I feel wonderful, as wonderful can be
It makes me wanna say the same thing to somebody new
And by the way I've been meaning to say
I think you're wonderful, too

When each one of us feels important inside
Loving and giving and glad we're alive
Oh what a difference we'll make in each day
And all because someone decided to say...

I think you're wonderful
When somebody says that to me
I feel wonderful, as wonderful can be
It makes me wanna say the same thing to somebody new
And by the way I've been meaning to say
I think you're wonderful, too

And by the way I've been meaning to say,  I think you're wonderful, too

 

We’re Going to be Friends (Jack Johnson)-

Fall is here, hear the yell

Back to school, ring the bell

Brand new shoes, walking blues

Climb the fence, books and pens

I can tell that we are going to be friends

Yes I can tell that we are going to be friends

Walk with me Suzy Lee

Through the park and by the tree

We can rest upon the ground

And look at all the bugs we’ve found

Safely walk to school without a sound

We safely walk to school without a sound

Well here we are no one else

We walk to school all by ourselves

There’s dirt on our uniforms

From chasing all the ants and worms

We clean up and now it’s time to learn

We clean up and now it’s time to learn

Numbers letters learn to spell

Nouns and books and show and tell

Play time we will throw the ball

Then back to class through the hall

The teacher marks our height against the wall

The teacher marks our height against the wall

And we don’t notice any time pass

Because we don’t notice anything

And we sit side by side in every class

The teacher thinks that I sound funny

But she likes it when you sing

Tonight I’ll dream in my bed

While silly thoughts run through my head

Of the bugs and alphabet

And when I wake tomorrow I’ll bet

That you and I will walk together again

Because I can tell that we are going to be friends

I can tell that we are going to be friends

 Empathy Song   

I don’t know what it’s like to be you and

I don’t know what you have to go through but

I can try to see the world through your eyes

Put myself in your shoes and Empathize

A: Emphasize?

B: No, no, no. Empathize, not emphasize, …but empathize.

A: Entropy?

B: No, no no. Empathy, not entropy,…but empathy.

A: OH…

Every story has more than oneside

It’s not about what’s wrong or right

Who’s to judge what’s good or bad

What makes me laugh might make you mad

Let’s try to make a deal

We’ll listen to each other and see how the other feels

With empathy we can understand

We can solve our problems and make amends

I don’t know what it’s like to beyou and

I don’t know what you have to go through but

I can try to see the world through your eyes

Put myself in your shoes and Empathize

A: Emphasize?

B: No, no, no. Empathize, not emphasize, …but empathize.

A: Entropy?

B: No, no no. Empathy, not entropy,…but empathy.

A: OH…

Everybody’s got a different point of view

How would I feel if I were you?

Some people think this, some people think that,

I’m telling you empathy is where it’s at

We can solve our problems by talking and listening

Instead of judging we can look at things differently

Write to congress and get them to see

Instead of fighting we can try to use empathy, not entropy, but empathy

I don’t know what it’s like to be you and

I don’t know what you have to go through but

I can try to see the world through your eyes

Put myself in your shoes and Empathize

A: Emphasize?

B: No, no, no. Empathize, not emphasize,…but empathize.

A: Entropy?

B: No, no, no. Empathy, not entropy,…but empathy.

A: OH…

A: not entropy, but empathy

B: (talkin’ ‘bout empathy)

 It’s All Right to Cry

 Free to Be Foundation, Inc.

It’s all right to cry.
Crying gets the sad out of you.
It’s all right to cry.
It might make you feel better.


Raindrops from your eyes 
Washing all the mad out of you.
Raindrops from your eyes.
It might make you feel better.

It’s all right to feel things 
Though the feelings can be strange.
Feelings are such real things
And they change and change
And change.

Sad and grumpy
Down in the dumpy
Snuggly huggly
Mean and ugly
Sloppy slappy
Hoppy happy
Change and change and change

It’s all right to know
Feelings come and feelings go.
And it’s all right to cry.

It might make you feel better.     

 Respect 

from BeBop Your Best R. Grammer

If I respect you - and you respect me
And we respect each other
What a world this will be
You'll be glad I'm me - and I'll be glad you're you
‘Cause that's just what folks who respect each other do.

If you let me talk till I'm finished
And I listen when you speak your mind
And we choose our words carefully
We'll hear each other differently
It's one more way respect can be defined.

If I respect you - and you respect me
And we respect each other
What a world this will be
You'll be glad I'm me - and I'll be glad you're you
‘Cause that's just what folks who respect each other do.

When I don't dis what you do
And you let me be who I am
And we don't label anyone
Or pick on others just for fun
We show respect's a word we understand.
If I respect you - and you respect me
And we respect each other
What a world this will be
You'll be glad I'm me - and I'll be glad you're you
‘Cause that's just what folks who respect each other do.‘Cause that's just what folks, just what folks
Just what folks who respect each other do.

Perseverance

from BeBop Your Best Red Grammer

You can't hit a baseball till you learn to swing a bat
Before you do a somersault there's lots of falling flat
If getting good's the question the answer's very clear
To get to where you're going, well, you've got to persevere

So Try, Try, Try, Try, Try, and Try again
Why cry, "Why?", when you can try again
You can help by giving yourself another chance and then...
Whenever it's tough just show ‘em your stuff
And try and try again

You can't play a saxophone until you learn to blow
You can't play a violin until you learn to bow
If getting good's the question the answer's very clear
To get to where you're going, well, you've got to persevere

So Try, Try, Try, Try, Try, and Try again
Why cry, "Why?", when you can try again
You can help by giving yourself another chance and then...
Whenever it's tough just show ‘em your stuff
And try and try again

When you have to practice to make it on the team
Or when you've got some homework that makes you want to scream
You're sure to find that nothin' ever makes you feel as good
As when you finally get it right just like you knew you could... So

Try, Try, Try, Try, Try, and Try again
Why cry, "Why?", when you can try again
You can help by giving yourself another chance and then...
Whenever it's tough just show ‘em your stuff
And try and try again

Whenever it's tough just show ‘em your stuff
And try... and try... a-gain!

 

WHEN I GET A FEELING 

When I get a feeling I try to feel it
I want to know what it is and what it's trying to say
Whether I'm reeling or quietly feeling
It's a part of me, I was made that way

Hello anger,you sure look mad
Hello blues, why you feeling so sad
Anxious, grateful, eager, afraid
These are just a few of the friends I've made

Frustrated tells me it's time to relax
Thoughtful quietly gives me the facts
Tired tells me to get some rest
Satisfied says, "You've done your best"

When I get a feeling I try to feel it
I want to know what it is and what it's trying to say
Whether I'm reeling or quietly feeling
It's a part of me, I was made that way

Things like worried and jealous used to be
An incomprehensible language to me
Twitches and tingles, an inner sensation
I finally learned to do the translation

Now greedy tells me, "You want too much!"
Tenderness is asking for a gentle touch
Confidence tell me "you're doing okay"
And joyful shouts, "It's a wonderful day!"

When I get a feeling I try to feel it
I want to know what it is and what it's trying to say
Whether I'm reeling or quietly feeling
It's a part of me, I was made that way

Happy or sad, there's no good or bad
A feeling's a feeling with something to say
There's at least one a minute with wisdom within it
They help me to grow as I go on my way

When I get a feeling I try to feel it
I want to know what it is and what it's trying to say
Whether I'm reeling or quietly feeling
It's a part of me, I was made that way

RIVER 

I was born in the path of the winter wind,
And raised where the mountains are old.
Their springtime waters came dancing down;
I remember the tales they told.

 The whistling ways of my younger days

to quickly have faded on by

but all of their memories linger on

like the light of the fading sky

River, take me along, in your sunshine, sing me your song.
Ever moving and winding and free,
You rolling old river, you changing old river,
Let’s you and me, river, run down to the sea.

 I've been to the city and back again

 I've been moved by some things that I've learned

 Met a lot of good people and I call them my friends

felt the change when the season turned

I’ve heard all the songs that the children sing,
And listened to love’s melodies,
I’ve felt my own music within me rise;
Like the wind in the autumn trees.

River, take me along, in your sunshine, sing me your song.
Ever moving and winding and free,
You rolling old river, you changing old river,
Let’s you and me, river, run down to the sea.

Some day when the flowers are blooming in still

some day when the grass is still green

my rolling river will round the bend

and flow into the open sea

So here’s to the rainbow that followed me here,
And here’s to the friends that I know,
And here’s to the song that’s within me now;
I sing it wherever I go.

River, take me along, in your sunshine, sing me your song.
Ever moving and winding and free,
You rolling old river, you changing old river,
Let’s you and me, river, run down to the sea 

A PLACE IN THE CHOIR 

All God's critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands, or paws
Or anything they got.

Listen to the bass, it's the one on the bottom
Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big to-do
The old cow just goes MOOOOO

The dog and the cat pick up the middle
While the honey bee hums and the cricket fiddles
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
And the old coyote howls OOO

All God'scritters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands, or paws
Or anything they got.

Singin' inthe night-time, singin' in the day
Little duck quacks, and he's on his way
The possum ain't got much to say

And the porcupine talks to himself

It's a simple song of livin' sung everywhere
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear
Grumpy alligator and the hawks above
Sly raccoon and the turtle dove.

All God'scritters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands, or paws
Or anything they got.

(Animal sounds!)

All God's critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands, or paws

Or anything they got.

All God's critters got a place in the choir------XX

"Somewhere Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World"

OOO...OOO...OOO.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh oh

Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?

Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue
And I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, I...I love you

I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world world

Someday I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I? 

L-O-V-E

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

GRATITUDE

When someone does me a little favor
Like saving me a jellybean in my favorite flavor
I'm so grateful, so very grateful
I say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

If you pass me the mashed potatoes
And remember to put the gravy on the side
I'm so grateful, so very grateful
I say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Chorus
Show a little gratitude, make someone smile
It's worth your while and so easy to do
Just a little thank you may be all they need to be guaranteed
To redo their good deed for someone new

If you should warn me, "Watch out! Don't step in that!"
Or tell me I've got spinach stuck between my teeth
You know that I'm grateful, eternally grateful
I say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Chorus

When I wake up and walk outside each day
The earth, the sun, the sky... they just blow me away
I'm so grateful, incredibly grateful
I say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Thank you! Gracias! (Spanish) Danke! (German) and Merci Beaucoup! (French)
Arigato! (Japanese) That's how I say thanks to you!
Komawoyo! (Korean) Shukran (Arabic) Salamat! (Tagalog - Philippines)
Ngiyabonga (Ndebel -Zimbabwe) Kia ora (Maor -New Zealand/Australia) Thanks a lot!
