Wee Read - Snowflakes, Snowflakes

Early Literacy Tip of the Week:
Provide feedback - if a baby says "ma-ma-ma" answer her attempts at speech with "Yes, mama is right here."

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
Snow! by Christine Ford

Putting on Mittens
Sung to: "The Farmer in the Dell"
The Thumb in the Thumb place
Fingers all together
This is the song we sing
When it is mitten weather.

Warm Hands Warm
--from Lapsit Services for the Very Young II by Linda L. Ernst. New York: Neal-Schuman Publishers, Inc, 2001.

Four Little Snowmen
Four 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)

I Wiggle My Fingers

Book Two
Baby Loves Winter! by Karen Katz

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.

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)
