Hello song with Lambchop I keep the same from week to week so that the parents and the children now know the song and actions 🙂
Song-Let’s all do a little Clapping from Jbrary
Let’s all do a little clapping. Let’s all do a little clapping. Let’s all do a little clapping to spread winter cheer!
You can make up lots of different actions for the kids to do for many verses. I got this off of Jbrary’s blog which I LOVE.
Song with Scarves-Snow on the Ground from Jbrary’s Blog
Snow on the ground. Snow on the Trees. Snow on the Roof but not on me!
Sun on the ground. Sun on the Trees. Sun on the roof but not on me!
Leaves on the ground. Leaves on the Trees. Leaves on the roof but not on me.
Rain on the ground. Rain on the trees. Rain on the roof but not on me.
Scarf motions are on Jbrary’s blog, check it out 🙂
Song-Little Blue Sled to the tune of Oh, my darling
From Jbrary’s blog
Bumping up and down in my little blue sled. Bumping up and down in my little blue sled. Bumping up and down in my little blue sled. Won’t you be me darling?
Snow coming down on my little blue sled. Snow coming down on my little blue sled. Snow coming down on my little blue sled. Won’t you be my darling?
Waving to my friends in my little blue sled. Waving to my friends in my little blue sled. Waving to my friends in my little blue sled. Won’t you be my darling?
Five Little Snowmen
Five little snowmen jumping on the sled. One fell off and bumped his head. Frosty called the doctor and the doctor said no more snowmen jumping on the sled!
I made this flannel board activity by printing images off of clker.com and laminated them and put felt on the back of them. The kids help me take one snowmen off at a time during the song. They loved this!
Loved this book! I sang it as we went. A great book 🙂
10 Little Snowmen (Tune of 10 Little Indians)
One little, two little, three little snowmen. Four little, five little, six little snowmen. Seven little, eight little, nine little snowmen. Ten Snowmen in a line.
Song-Snowflake, Snowflake (Tune of Twinkle, Twinkle) from Jbrary’s Blog
Snowflake, snowflake in the sky. Love to watch you floating by. Down you fall against the ground. Down you fall without a sound. Snowflake, snowflake in the sky. Love to watch you floating by.
Goodbye song with Lambchop. Same as the hello song but I interchange hello with goodbye.
Thanks for reading! We will be taking one week off and will return in two weeks 🙂
