In Winter I’m Rounder In winter I’m rounder and fatter than before.

I’m wearing coats and sweaters and woolen hats galore. My hands are as plump as kittens when I’m wearing winter mittens. My legs in thick, snug snow pants look like an elephant’s. Indeed, I must confess that when I do undress, I feel as small and light as a bird flown out of sight. Winter Windows In my neighbor’s window Seven candles shine. Glossy black, green and red, They show it’s Kwanzaa time. In my neighbor’s window Eight candles make a row. Hanukkah is symbolized By their golden glow. In my neighbor’s window One candle flame burns bright In a wreath of holly On this peaceful Christmas night.

Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear, Where have you been? Over the mountains Such things I've seen! Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear, What have you done? Eaten blueberries Made ripe by the sun. Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear, What have you found? Ice-cold spring water Deep from the ground. Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear, What do you dream? Sweet tasting salmon Swimming upstream. Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear, Where do you creep? Into my dark cave. Alone, let me sleep!

Time to Migrate
(sung to the tune of “London Bridge”)

Geese are honking, “Let’s fly south. Let’s fly south. Honk, honk, honk.” Geese are honking, “Let’s fly south.” Time to migrate! Ducks are quacking, “Let’s fly south. Let’s fly south. Quack, quack, quack.” Ducks are quacking, “Let’s fly south.” Time to migrate! Robins are chirping, “Let’s fly south. Let’s fly south. Chirp, chirp, chirp.” Robins are chirping, “Let’s fly south.” Time to migrate!

Think Snow!
( sung to the tune of “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush ”)

What shall we do in wintertime, In wintertime, in wintertime? What shall we do in wintertime On [Monday ] when it ’s snowing? We ’ll build a snowman round and fat, Round and fat, round and fat! We ’ll build a snowman round and fat On [Monday ] when it ’s snowing! Sing the song again, using different days of the week and activities such as the following: Tuesday, take a sled ride down a hill Wednesday, find some food to feed the birds Thursday, skate around a frozen pond Friday, pack some snowballs round and tight Saturday, make some angels in the snow Sunday, build a snow fort in the snow

Snowflakes
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle )

Snowflake, snowflake, fancy free. Snowflake, snowflake, dance with me. Touch my head, then my toes. Land on my nose where they could wind blows. Snowflake, snowflake, turn around. Snowflake, snowflake, touch the ground. Snowflake, snowflake, fancy free. Snowflake, snowflake, dance with me. Touch my elbow, then my shoulder. Land on my chin where it's a little bit colder. Snowflake, snowflake, turn around. Snowflake, snowflake, touch the ground. Snowflake, snowflake, fancy free. Snowflake, snowflake, dance with me. Touch my ear, then my knees. Snowflake, I'm about to freeze! Snowflake, snowflake, fancy free. Snowflake, snowflake, dance with me.

A Chubby Little Snowman A chubby little snowman, Had a carrot nose. Along came a bunny, And what do you suppose? That hungry little bunny, Looking for his lunch. Ate that snowman's carrot nose, Nibble, nibble, crunch!!

Put on Your Snow Clothes! Outside there's snow! The cold winds blow! Let's bundle up and go, go, go! Put on socks and long johns too. The cold out there won't bother you. Put on pants and a nice warm shirt. Now that icy wind won't hurt! Put on mittens and a hat. You'll be comfy dressed like that! Put on your boots. Your gear's complete! You'll be warm down to your feet! Outside there's snow! The cold winds blow! We're bundled up! Let's go, go, go!

How to Talk to your Snowman Use words that are pleasing, Like: freezing and snow Iceberg and igloo, And blizzard and blow, Try: Arctic, Antarctic, Say: shiver and shake, But whatever you never say, never say: bake! Do You Love the Snow?
(sung to the tune of “Do Your Ears Hang Low?”)

Do you love the snow? Put both hands over heart. You can play in it, you know! Point to others. You can make a big snowball Use both hands to form big circle. Or a snowman really tall! Indicate “tall” with one hand. You can travel on your skis, Pretend to grip ski poles and move hips. Make an angel if you please! Wave both arms as if making snow angel. Do you love the snow? Put both hands over heart.

Frost the Snowman Frosty the Snowman Was a jolly, happy soul With a corncob pipe and a button nose And two eyes made out of coal Frosty the Snowman Is a fairy tale they say He was made of snow, but the children know How he came to life one day There must have been some magic In that old silk hat they found For when they placed it on his head He began to dance around! O Frosty the Snowman Was alive as he could be And the children say he could laugh and play Just the same as you and me Thumpetty thump thump Thumpety thump thump Look at Frosty go Thumpetty thump thump Thumpetty thump thump Over the hills of snow

Frosty the Snowman Is a fairy tale they say He was made of snow, but the children know How he came to life one day Frosty the Snowman Knew the sun was hot that day So he said "Let's run and we'll have some fun now Before I melt away." Down to the village With a broomstick in his hand Running here and there all around the square Saying "Catch me if you can!" He led them down the streets of town Right to the traffic cop And he only paused a moment when He heard him holler "Stop!" For Frosty the Snowman Had to hurry on his way But he waved goodbye saying "Don't you cry, I'll be back again some day." Thumpetty thump thump Thumpety thump thump Look at Frosty go Thumpetty thump thump Thumpetty thump thump Over the hills of snow
