Pam and Greta wrote this song at the request of a first grade teacher who said her class did not understand the concept of the New Year’s holiday and making resolutions. Other teachers have mentioned they sing the chorus at the beginning of the school year (“September’s here and it’s a new school year”). One teacher even said that since a year is SO such a long time for kindergarteners, she would sing it at the start of every month. “February’s here and it’s a new month, I’ll try a little harder for the new month.” Let us know how you like to use it!
