Rhymes and Songs

Opening Song

Ask your child about the day’s weather!

Clap Everybody and Say Hello! (Tune of Skip to my Lou)

Clap everybody and say hello.
No matter what the weather.
Jump everybody and say hello.
No matter what the weather.
Stomp everybody and say hello.
No matter what the weather.
Dance everybody and say hello.
No matter what the weather.

Scarf Song: Let It Snow
Oh, the weather outside is frightful
[wrap scarf around neck]
But the fire is so delightful
[rub scarf in hands, as before a fire]
And since we’ve no place to go
[shake scarf and finger side to side, like saying no]
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow [continuously throw scarf like snowflakes]
It doesn’t show signs of stoppin’ [shake scarf and finger side to side, like saying no]
And I’ve got some corn for poppin’
[ball up scarf in hand and let it pop out like popcorn]
The lights are turned way down low [drop scarf low]
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
[continuously throw scarf like snowflakes]

Scarf Rhyme: Snow on the Grass
Snow on the grass [bring scarf low]
Snow in the trees [bring scarf up high]
Snow on the rooftop [place scarf on head]
But not on me! [drop scarf to the ground]

Video Song: “Sharon, Lois, and Bram: Skinnamarink”

Snowflake to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Snowflake, snowflake in the sky
I love to watch you floating by
Down you fall on the ground
Down you without a sound
Snowflake, snowflake in the sky
I love to watch you floating by

Affirmations: I am great (stretch out arms), I am smart (point to head), I am strong (flex biceps), I am loved (hug self), Today is an awesome day (fist pump and jump)!

Literacy Tip

Talk to your children about what they draw and write captions or stories together. This helps make a connection between spoken and printed language.
