That hungry little rabbit
Looking for his lunch,
Ate that snowman’s nose
With a crunch, crunch, crunch!

Song: 

On the First day of Winter my best friend gave to me…

 1 a red cap with a gold snap
 2 bright blue mittens
 3 striped scarves
 4 prickly pinecones
 5 birdseed pockets
tiny twigs
 7 maple leaves
 8 orange berries
 9 big black buttons
10 salty peanuts

Rhyme:

Snow on the rooftops
Snow on the trees
Snow on the green grass
Snow on me.
Snow on my mittens
Snow on my nose
Snow on my head
Snow on my toes.
Whirling, twirling, swirling down
Down & down & down & down.

Rhyme:

Way up high in the winter sky,
(raise hands above head)
Two little snowflakes, caught my eye,
(point up)
Down to the ground they fell without a sound.
(flutter hands down to the ground)
And before very long, it was snowing all around!
(turn in circle with hands fluttering)

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: The More We Get Together
The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

Movement Rhyme: Way Up High
Way up high in the Winter sky
(raise hands above head)
Two little snowflakes caught my eye.
(point up)
Down to the ground they fell without a sound,
(flutter hands down to the ground)
But before very long, it was snowing all around!
(turn in circle with hands fluttering)

Rhyme: 5 Little Snowmen
Five Little Snowmen standing round my door.
This one melted and then there were four.
Four little snowmen beneath a green pine tree,
This one melted and then there were three.
Three little snowmen with caps and mittens blue.
This one melted and then there were two.
Two little snowmen standing in the sun,
This one melted and then there was one.
One little snowman started to run.
But he melted away and then there was none.

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
Wave high, wave low,
I think it’s time, we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips,
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye,
Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Clap and Sing Hello! (tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello
We wave and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

We stomp and sing hello,
We stomp and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side
Hold hands at side
Then behind my back they hide
Put hands behind back
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so
Wiggle your fingers
Shake them fast, shake them slow
Shake fingers fast and slow
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap hands
Then I rest them in my lap
Rest hands in lap
Now they’re quiet as can be.
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Snowy Pokey
You put your right mitten in, You take your right mitten out,
You put your right mitten in and you shake it all about.
You do the Snowy Pokey and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

Continue with additional verses:
You put your left mitten in
You put your scarf in
You put your right boot in
You put your hat in
You put your snowself in

Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin.
Open your mouth, but do not let them in!
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.

Snowflakes
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle)
Snowflakes, snowflakes, dance around.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, touch the ground.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, in the air.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, everywhere!
Snowflakes, snowflakes, dance around.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, touch the ground.

I Built a Snowman
I built a little snowman. (make circles with arms)
He had a carrot nose. (point to nose)
Along came a bunny (hold up two bent fingers)
And what do you suppose? (shrug)
That hungry little bunny, (make bunny again)
Looking for his lunch, (hop bunny around)
Ate the snowman’s nose. (grab nose with fingers)
Nibble… nibble… CRUNCH! (pretend to eat carrot nose)

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap

Stomp your feet
Blink your eyes
Wave goodbye!
