    Someone taught me the song this way and it is my #1 requested song in Kindergarten and 1st grade: v.1 Ms. Julie Ann Johnson, oh… v.2 Where’s she goin’?, oh…. (stop and ask a student singing well to pick a place for her to go) v.3 She’s going to_____(whatever they picked), oh… v.4 How’s she gonna get there? oh… (stop and pick another student) v.5 She’s going to ___________, oh… v.6 What’s she gonna do there? oh… v.7 She’s gonna ___________, oh.. v.8 When’s she coming back? oh… v.9 She’s coming back ____________. They love making up crazy stories. I use it to reinforce good singing posture- I pick students who are demonstrating good posture to make up the parts of the story. You should see those back straighten up whenever I play the opening chord from then on! 🙂
