Welcome to Carmel
Good morning, o! sweet little one
Feel at home as this is your home
I am here to greet you with the morn
And wish you all the best in life.
Now you look… pretty sweet…
so we go…here we go….
Count on….my child…from one to hundred
Write on my sweet little darling A B C.
Draw the moon, then the sun and the stars
Paint with blue a clear sky and a leaf green.
Show me your hands with fingers and nail
Tell me the colour of your hair and lips
Pick up from the basket a bunch of grapes so sweet
Break the stick into two or three.
Now look at me and answer these queries one by one
Then shake hands with mummy and say, ‘I love you.’
What is your name my cute little one…
How are you and how old are you…
Do you know the name of your dad and mom
If not the name of your pet and pal.
Come closer and sit by my side
Look on the screen and name the picture on –
A for apple, B for ball
D for dog and M for milk.
If you are so smart a child, answer few more questions so clear
And tell Papa that you love him too..
Show me the actions you do in a day
Hands up ….hands down…then clap your hands
Close your eyes and smile away
Open your arms and touch your feet.
Jump a little and pray for a while
Eat an ice cream and wash your face
Dance to the music that you love to sing
And sing for me a poem of your choice.
Sweet little darling…you have done very well
Come to Carmel for we wish you well
You are our jingle bell, you are our pride
We need you, for we love you.
