Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Winter Hokey Pokey
You put your mittens in, you take your mittens out
You put your boots in, you take your boots out
You put your hat in, you put your hat out
You put your coat in, you put your coat out

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?

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.)

Song: Hat, Scarf, Parka, Boots
Sing it to “Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” Touch each part of your body as you sing: feet, chest, neck, and head.
Hat, scarf, parka, boots, parka, boots
Hat, scarf, parka, boots, parka, boots
In wintertime we wear snowsuits!
Hat, scarf, parka, boots, parka, boots

Boots, parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat
Boots, parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat
In wintertime we dress like that!
Boots, parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat!

Puppet Rhyme: There’s Something in the Snow
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
(CHIRP, CHIRP, CHIRP, A bird is what I found! / GRR GRR GRR, A bear is what I found! / SCRITCH, SCRITCH, SCRITCH, A squirrel is what I found!)
