Well, I don't know the tune it goes to. If you want to call me, I'll sing it
for you! I usually just make up tunes to go with instructions for my little
ones or use old nursery tunes like Twinkle Twinkle, LIttle Star.

"CLEAN UP CLEAN UP EVERBODY CLEAN UP
CLEAN UP CLEAN UP IT'S TIME TO GO TO ________."

That's how I sing it. Then I elaborate on it by adding names like "JOHNNY
NEEDS TO CLEAN UP, SUSIE'S DONE A GOOD JOB. DANIEL LOOKS READY, IT'S TIME TO
GO TO________
Then I count down from five and the first team in their seats, quietly, get
to leave first.

There's a really neat seriers called PIGGYBACK SONGS that puts new words to
old tunes. I used it a lot when I taught pre-school. JH
