Storytime: Snowmen

I recently lost my voice and am just starting to get it back. I was a little nervous to do story time today but I knew the wonderful parents would help me out! I also used a lot of music today (much more than I typically use) to help save my voice. You can either sing these songs alone or use the music to accompany you.

 

Snow on the Rooftop by Kathy Reid-Naiman
Snow on the rooftops (make pointed roof shape with arms)
Snow on the trees (hold arms up like branches)
Snow on the green grass (touch ground)
And snow on me! (point to self)

Snow on my mittens (hold up hands)
Snow on my nose (touch nose)
Snow on my head (touch head)
And snow on my toes (touch toes)

Twirling, swirling, whirling down (wave hands)
Down and down and down and down (lower hands down)

Chubby Little Snowman
A chubby little snowman (hold hands out by side)
Had a carrot nose (point to nose)
Along came a bunny (hop)
And what do you suppose? (shrug shoulders)
That hungry little bunny (rub stomach)
Looking for his lunch (hold hands above eyes)
Ate that snowman’s carrot nose (pretend to eat)
Nibble, nibble, crunch

Snowflakes Dance Around by Carole Peterson
To make it more interactive hand out a paper snowflake to each child.

Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around (wave snowflake)
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground (put snowflake on the floor)
Snowflakes landing on my nose (place snowflake on nose)
Snowflakes on my toes (place snowflake on toes)
Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around (wave snowflake)
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground (put snowflake on the floor)

I’m a Little Snowman (Tune: I’m a Little Teapot) by Carole Peterson
I’m a little snowman
Short and fat (hold arms out to the side)
Here are my buttons (point to chest)
Here is my hat (tap head)
When the sun comes out (circle arms above)
I run away (running motion)
But I slowly melt away (crouch down)

Five Little Snowmen

Five little snowmen all in a row (hold up 5 fingers)
Each with a hat (touch head)
And a big red bow (put hands under chin)
Out came the sun and it shone all day (raise hands over head)
And one little snowman melted away (lower hands)
(count down)
