Winter Strong Start

Welcome Song:
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap, a clap, clap, clap, a clap, clap, clap. I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap, and I wiggle my  waggles away.
… nose with a beep, beep, beep
… eyes with a blink, blink, blink
… tummy with a rub, rub, rubSnowballs

Rhyme: Open and Shut Them, open and shut them give a little clap, clap, clap, open and shut them, open and shut them, put them in your lap, lap, lap. Creep them, creep them, creep them, creep them right up to your chin, chin, chin. Open up your little mouth but do not let them in!

Book: Snowballs by Lois Ehlert

Song: Snowflakes are falling down, falling down, falling down.
Snowflakes are falling down, I love winter.
Build a snowman tall and round, tall and round, tall and round,
Build a snowman tall and round, I love winter.

Snowman Flannel (let kids add the pieces)
I made a friendly snowman, I made him big and round.
I made him from a snowball, I rolled upon the ground.
He has two eyes, a nose, a mouth, a lovely scarf of red.
He even has some buttons,  and a hat upon his head.

Song: Snowy Pokey
You put your right mitten in, you take your right mitten out. You put your right mitten and you shake it all about.
You do the Snowy Pokey (shiver), and you warm yourself up.
That’s what it’s all about.
left mitten…
right boot…

Closing Song:
We wave goodbye like this, we wave goodbye like this. We clap our hands for all our friends, we wave goodbye like this.
