Do You Know This Friend of Mine?

Here’s a song the children love!  It’s perfect for reinforcing phonemic awareness and a great reminder of their classmates’ names.  I learned it way back in my university days, so I really don’t know who to credit for it.  Whoever you are, many children send an enthusiastic  “Thank you”!

(Tune: Do you know the muffin man)

Do you know this friend of mine, this friend of mine, this friend of mine?

Do you know this friend of mine, her name it rhymes with Bara?  (Tara!)

Simple, right?  If they’re beginning to grasp the concept of rhyming, they’ll go nuts for it!  Give them time to think about the answer, and they’ll shout it right out!  Enjoy!
