I’d like to preface my book choices by stating that I’m not the biggest fan of “There Was an Old Lady….” stories, the original is too graphic because she often dies and the remakes (most often involving holidays) are just plan weird, with that being said I still gave it a shot with “There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow.” If the kids really liked the book I was going to put my personal feelings aside and start using them in story time but alas my children thought it was weird. So this was the beginning and end of my “There Was an Old Lady…” story time use. I know some kids love these books but it just doesn’t work for my crew (or me).
Five Little Snowmen (Flannel Board) (Tune: Five Little Monkeys)
Five little snowmen riding on a sled
One fell off and bumped his head
Frosty called the doctor and the doctor said
No more snowmen riding on the sled
Chubby Little Snowman
A chubby little snowman (hold hands out to side)
Had a carrot nose (point to nose)
Along came a bunny (hop like a bunny)
And what do you suppose? (shrug shoulders)
That hungry little bunny (rub stomach)
Looking for his lunch (hold hand above eyes and look around)
Ate that snowman’s carrot nose (bite)
Nibble, nibble crunch
We played with the parachute and made some paper snowflakes fly.
