From Storytime

Into the snow by Yuki Kaneko


SNOWFLAKES (from Storytime Katie

     One little snowflake with nothing to do, along came another and then there were…two!
     Two little snowflakes laughing with me, along came another and then there were…three!
     Three little snowflakes looking for some more, along came another and then there were…four!
     Four little snowflakes dancing a jive, along came another and then there were…five!
     Five little snowflakes, having so much fun, out came the sun, and then there were none!



MITTENS (hide a white circle underneath different colored mittens)

     Snowball, snowball cold and round

     Behind which mitten can you be found?


The snowy day by Ezra Jack Keats



     Snowman, snowman turn around

     Snowman, snowman touch the ground

     Snowman, snowman touch your toes

     Snowman, snowman wiggle your nose

     Snowman, snowman reach up high

     Snowman, snowman blink your eyes

     Snowman, snowman bend your knees

     Snowman, snowman sit down please!




     Two little snowflakes falling through the air [hold up two hands]

     One named Sonny and one named Cher [hold up one hand at a time]

     Fall over here Sonny, fall over here Cher [make your snowflakes fall to the right]

     Fall back there Sonny, fall back there Cher [make the snowflakes fall to the left]
