(To the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle”)
Write this song on chart paper or on the board. Use picture cues.

To the Sukkah
I will bring
fruits and vegetables on a
string
Tie the up
Hang them high
Through the roof
You see the sky.

As a name recog. activity, replace “I” with a name of a child in the class, and then challenge the class to sing the song the new way.


Tune: This Old Man

Here we go, out to play

To the Sukkah, we’re on our way

With a hammer, boards and nails, too

We’ll build a Sukkah for me and you!


Tune: She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain

We’ll be going to the Sukkah on Sukkot (2x)

We’ll be going to the Sukkah (2x)

We’ll be going to the Sukkah on Sukkot.

We’ll bring fruit to the Sukkah on Sukkot (2x)

We’ll bring fruit to the Sukkah (2x)

We’ll bring fruit to the Sukkah on Sukkot.

We’ll shake the lulav…

We’ll hold the etrog…

We’ll eat our meals…
