Wee Read - Winter

Early Literacy Tip of the Week: Respond to your baby's interest. Imitate his responses.

Good Morning

Hello, How are You?

The Winter Pokey
Sung to: "The Hokey Pokey"
You put your mittens in,
you take your mittens out,
you put your mittens in
and you shake it all about.
You do the winter pokey
and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about.
Additional verses:
You put your boots in . . .
You put your hat in . . .
You put your snowsuit in . . .

Open Shut Them

Book One

My Mittens
Mittens for the snow time,
          (Fingers flutter down like snow)
When the world is white,
Mittens for my two hands
          (Hold up two hands)
Mittens left and right,
          (Wave left hand, then right hand)
Mittens with a thumb in place,
          (Thumbs up)
Mittens warm and snug,
          (Hug baby)
Mittens make me feel like
A bug inside a rug
          (Hug baby snug)

Snowflakes, Snowflakes
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Dance around (wiggle fingers)
Touch the ground (touch floor)
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
In the air (flutter fingers upward)
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Everywhere (flutter fingers outward)

Four Little Snowmen
Five little snowmen riding on a sled
One fell off and bumped his head
Frosty called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more snowmen riding on that sled!”
(Continue in this fashion until you get to zero)

Three Crows
--Mother Goose on the Loose by Betsy Diamant-Cohen. New York: Neal-Schuman Publishers, Inc., 2006.

Two Little Snowflakes
Way up high in the winter sky,
Two little snowflakes caught my eye.
Down to the ground they fell without a sound.
And before very long,
It was snowing all around.
