How about some old favorites for Valentine’s Day? –
Skinna-marinky dinky dink, skinnamarinky doo I love you (repeat three lines)
I love you in the morning and in the afternoon,
I love you in the evening, and underneath the moon
Skinnamarinky, dinky dink skinnamarinky doo
I love you!
There’s a Little Wheel A-Turnin’ In My Heart-
There’s a little wheel a turnin’ in my heart (repeat)
In my heart, in my heart,
There’s a little wheel a turnin’ in my heart.
Next verse- Oh I feel so very happy in my heart
Won’t You Be My Valentine Song
Oh, won’t you be my valentine My sweet little, pretty little valentine, Oh, won’t you be my valentine, My sweet little, pretty little friend?
Have children sit in a circle, one child is chosen to walk around to circle holding a valentine, she/he places a valentine besides another child’s back, at the end of the song, the children look behind their backs to see who has the valentine, now it’s their turn!
I tie Valentine’s Day in with talking about our hearts and how they work. I use this heart action rhyme: I am your heart and I go beat, beat (clap hands when say beat, beat) I pump blood white you are asleep (pretend asleep). I pump blood when you jump up and down. I pump blood when you run around. P pump blood when you move your feet (march in place). I pump blood as you tiptoe to your seat.
Love, Love, Love (tune: 3 Blind Mice)
Love, love, love,
love, love, love
See how it grows,
See how it grows.
I love my friends and they love me.
We love each other that’s plain to see.
There’s plenty for a big family.
Love, love, love, love, love, love.
