Jump, jump, jump my jiggles out
Jump, jump, jump my jiggles out

I gotta yawn, yawn, yawn my sleepies out
Yawn, yawn, yawn my sleepies out
Yawn, yawn, yawn my sleepies out

I gotta shake, shake, shake my sillies out
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Song: How to Build a Snowman
It snowed last night
So, the time is right
To go build a snowman
It snowed last night
So, bundle up tight
And let’s go build a snowman

First, we need to
Scoop, scoop, scoop up some snow
So, let’s scoop, scoop, scoop the snow

Now we need to
Pat, pat, pat the snow together
So, let’s pat, pat, pat the snow together

So, now we need to
Roll, roll, roll the snowball along
So, let’s roll, roll, roll that snowball

We’ve got a pretty big snowball now
But to make a snowman you need three snowballs!

So, now we need to
Count, count, count, count to three
So, let’s count, count, count: one, two, three!

So, now we need to
Stack, stack, stack our snowballs high
So, let’s stack, stack, stack our snowballs up high

So, now our snowman needs
Eyes, a nose, arms, and a mouth
So, let’s give him
Eyes, a nose, arms, and a mouth

It snowed last night
And we had a fun time
Building a snowman
Let’s give him a hat, and a scarf wrapped tight
And say goodnight to our snowman

There’s something in the snow, now what can it be?
There’s something in the snow that I can’t really see
Hear its funny sound . . . HOWL HOWL HOWL
A wolf is what I found! HOWL HOWL HOWL

There’s something in the snow, now what can it be?
There’s something in the snow that I can’t really see
Hear its funny sound . . . CHIRP, CHIRP, CHIRP
A bird is what I found! CHIRP, CHIRP, CHIRP

There’s something in the snow, now what can it be?
There’s something in the snow that I can’t really see
Hear its funny sound . . . SQUEAK, SQUEAK, SQUEAK
A mouse is what I found! SQUEAK, SQUEAK, SQUEAK

There’s something in the snow, now what can it be?
There’s something in the snow that I can’t really see
Hear its funny sound . . . SCRITCH, SCRITCH, SCRITCH
A squirrel is what I found! SCRITCH, SCRITCH, SCRITCH

Five little snowmen on a snowy day
The first one said, “Let’s play and play and play!”
The second one said, “Let’s stomp on the ground!”
The third one said, “Let’s roll around!”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run!”
And the fifth one said, “Oh, dear, I feel the sun!”
“Oh, dear,” said the snowmen as they looked toward the sky
And five melting snowmen said a happy goodbye!

Hello friends

Song: I Am Thankful
(Tune: She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain)
I am thankful for my dog and for my cat,
And my teddy bear so furry, soft and fat,
I am thankful for soft kittens
And my nice warm woolen mittens
And my rain boots and my jacket and my hat.

I am thankful for my crayons and for my books,
And the way the leaves are different colors when I look,
I am thankful for potatoes
And for fresh and red tomatoes
And for all the tasty food that we all cook.

I am thankful for my family and my friends,
And for the way my favorite story ends
I am thankful for the flowers
And refreshing rainy showers,
All the happy things around me make me glad.

I breathe in
I breathe out
Every breath I take is something new
And I want to give so much to you

‘Cause I’ve got so much to give
I’ve got so much to give
This is the life I was born to live
And I’ve got so much to give

I breathe in
I breathe out
I breathe in
I breathe out
Every breath I take is something new
And I want to give so much to you

‘Cause I’ve got so much to give
I’ve got so much to give
This is the life I was born to live
And I’ve got so much to give

Shaker Song: If You’re Thankful and You Know It

If you’re thankful and you know it, shake your shaker

If you’re thankful and you know it, shake your shaker

Song: My Dog Rags
I have a dog and his name is Rags.
He eats so much that his tummy sags,
His ears flip flop
and his tail wig wags.
And when he walks, he goes zig zag.

CHORUS:
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig zag.
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig zag.
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig zag.
I love Rags and he loves me.

My dog Rags, he loves to run.
He wants me to join him in the fun.
He whimpers. [whimper]
He won’t obey.
He always runs the other way.

CHORUS

My dog Rags, he loves to bark.
He wants me to join him in the park.
He barks. [bark bark]
He tries to talk.
He barks to chase the cats away.
