Nursery Rhyme: I'm a great big snowman
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)
I'm a great big snowman,
Tall and fat.
Here is my tummy.
Here is my hat.
Raisins for my eyes,
And a carrot nose,
I'm all snow
from head to toe!
Story time:Word bird's winter words
Music and movement
Once there was a snowman,
Once there was a snowman
Tall,tall,tall.(raise hands above head each time you say tall)
In the snow he melted,(start to melt,moving body down)
In the snow he meted small small small (by the last small should be to the ground)
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 Snowey pokey and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about.
Note continue with additional verses:
You put your left mitten in
You put your scarf in
You put your right boot in
You put your left boot in
You put your hat in
You put your snowself in
Snack:Check out our snow(whip cream)on top of yogurt.My Preschooler loved getting the bear stuck in the snow.We talked about bears and hibernation.I wish I could hibernate.I hate the cold!brrrrrr!
For baby- 9 months and older:We are still working on our signs.Milk,more,done,cat,dog.This week we are going to add snow.I got out bowls and spoons and in it I put cotton balls and pine cones.We used the word soft, rough,bowl and spoon.
We also made a snow man with a oatmeal container and construction paper.Make eyes,hat,nose and scarf and glue on.Then toss snow balls(cotton balls)and try to make it inside!My preschooler lost interest with this activity but the baby loved dumping what was inside,which was crayons.He loves dumping his blocks out too!
