Snow


Opening Song:

Now this is the time for storytime, storytime, storytime.

This is the time for storytime.

I’m glad you are here, I’m so glad you are here.

Songs: Open Shut Them 

Open, shut them (Open both hands and then make a fist)
Open, shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap. (Clap hands together)
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
lay them on your lap, lap, lap. (Pat hands in lap)
Creep them, creep them, creep them, creep them (creep fingers from tummy up to mouth)
 Right up to your chinny, chin, chin.

Open wide your little mouth… but do not let them in. (Open mouth wide & hide hands behind back)

 

Song: A Little Mouse is Creeping

A little mouse is creeping, creeping, creeping (Make creeping motion with hands)
A little mouse is creeping
In the house... Shh… (Put index finger in front of mouth)
A little mouse is sleeping, sleeping, sleeping (Make sleeping motion)
A litter mouse is sleeping in the house. Shh…
An old grey cat comes creeping, creeping, creeping (Make creeping motion with hands)
An old grey cat comes creeping in the house
 And they both run away!!! (Pat hands on lap really fast.)

Rhyme: 5 Little Snowmen

5 little snowmen standing on a hill,

The 1st one says, “Brrrr! I feel a chill!”

The 2nd one says, “I’m glad I wore a hat!”

The 3rd one says, “I’m big and round, and that’s that!

The 4th one says, ‘the sky is looking grey.”

The 5th one says, “more snow! Hooray!”

 

Song: Snowflakes Falling Down (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Snow, snow falling down

Falling to the ground.

Big white fluffy flakes

That do not make a sound.

 

 Rhyme: The Chubby Snowman

A chubby little snowman

Had a carrot for a nose.                       (Point to nose.)

Along came a bunny,                           (Hold up 2 fingers on right hand to make bunny ears.)

And what do you suppose?                (Hold up hands, palms up in a questioning manner.)

That hungry little bunny

Looking for her lunch,                          (Put hand over brow and look around.)

Ate the snowman’s carrot nose         (Point to nose.)

Nibble, nibble crunch!                         

 

Song: The Winter Wind (Tune: Happy Birthday)

The winter wind blows

The winter wind blows

It gives me the shivers

From my head to my toes!

 

 Song: 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 and you really want to show it
 you’re happy and you know it, clap your hand. (clap, clap)

If you’re happy and you know it, pat your head (pat, pat)
If you’re happy and you know it, pat your head (pat, pat)
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
 If you’re happy and you know it pat your head. (pat, pat)

(Continue with other actions: beep your nose, wiggle your ears, etc.)

Closing Song:

Now this is the end of storytime, storytime, storytime.
This is the end of storytime.
I’m glad you were here.
 I’m so glad you were here.
