Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Hello Everybody
Well hello everybody can you touch your nose?
Touch your nose, touch your nose, touch your nose
Well hello everybody can you touch your nose?
Touch your nose
Repeat with toes, pat your head, rub your tummy

Fingerplay: Snowflakes, Snowflakes
Snowflakes, snowflakes dancing round, (Dance fingers around.)
Gently falling to the ground. (Wiggle fingers downward.)
See them drifting to and fro. (Sway fingers back and forth)
See them twirling fast, then slow. (Wiggle fingers in fast and slow circles.)
Snowflakes, snowflakes dancing round. (Dance fingers around.)
Gently falling to the ground. (Wiggle fingers downward.)

Flannelboard Rhyme: Snowball, Snowball
(Flannel board with multiple mittens, one hides a snowball behind it)
Snowball, snowball
Cold and round!
Behind which mitten
Can you be found?

Song: Winter Hokey Pokey
You put your mittens (hands) in, you take your mittens out
You put your mittens in, and you shake them all about
You do the Winter Pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about
Repeat with boots (feet), hat (head), coat (whole body)

Song: Ten Little Snowflakes
One little, two little, three little snowflakes . . .
Ten little snowflakes falling down

Ten little, nine little, eight little snowflakes . .
One little snowflake twirling round

Twirl, twirl, twirl like snowflakes . . .
Twirl like snowflakes – then fall down!

Fall, fall, fall like snowflakes . . .
Fall like snowflakes to the ground.
