The Snowkey Pokey
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 snowkey pokey and you turn yourself around. That’s what it’s all about.
You put your left mitten in . . . You put your right boot in . . . You put your left boot in . . . You put your hat in . . . You put your snowself in . .
have children make a snowman small enough to glue to an “popsicle” stick or tongue depressor. The snowman will be used as a small puppet to sing the snowman hokey pokey.
Snowman Hokey Pokey (to the tune of the Hokey pokey.
You put your snowman up, you put your snowman down,
you put your snowman up and you shake him all around.
You do the snowman pokey and you turn your self around, two stomps on the ground.
You put your snowman in front you put your snowman in back, you put your snowman in front and you give your knee a wack.
You do the snowman pokey and you turn your self around, two stomps on the ground. You touch your snowman to your head, you touch your snowman to your toe, you touch your snowman to your head and you shake his to and fro, you do the snowman pokey and your turn your self around, two stomps on the ground. We use this in all our different themes. We even use the same sticks we just make different items,like cars when we so transportation, dinosaurs when we do the Jurassic age, insects when we do insects…….
Thumb in the thumb place (show thumbs alone facing up), fingers all together (put fingers out with thumb still up so that it looks like a mitten). These are the things we wear in mitten weather (move “mittens” back and forth).
“I’m a Little Snowman” (Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little snowman, short and fat.
Here is my broomstick, here is my hat.
When the sun comes up I melt away.
Down, down, down till whoops! I’m a puddle!
“Snow is Falling all Around” Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”
Snow is falling all around,
Falling, falling, to the ground.
I catch snowflakes on my tongue.
Building snowmen is such fun.
Snow is falling all around, Falling, falling, to the ground.
Here is a snowman Big and white (draw a large circle in air) Isn’t he a lovely sight Let’s make a snowball (pretend to scoop snow from the floor) And throw it at his hat (Throw ball) Off it goes, just like that!
I had a little snowman He 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 nose. . . NIBBLE, NIBBLE, CRUNCH!!
This is a fingerplay:
Here is a Hill
Here is a hill (make a hill with your left arm)
All covered with snow
We’ll get on our sled And ZOOM!
Down we’ll go. (swoop right hand downward)
Five little snowmen On a winter’s day
The first one said, “Wake up, so we can play!”
The second one said, “Let’s stomp on the ground.”
The third one said, “Let’s roll around.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
The fifth one said, “I’m afraid I feel the sun.”
“Oh dear,” cried the snowmen, As they looked toward the sky.
And the five melting snowmen Waved a fond goodbye.
