“Snowflakes Fall”
Snowflakes, snowflakes falling from the sky
(Slowly raise hands above head and let fingers flutter down)
Falling, falling, gently falling (Cupping hands, let fingers slowly fall into lap)
On my nose, on my toes, (Point to nose, then wiggle toes)
On the ground below. (Point down)
Look! A snowflake! ( cup hands around one eye as if looking through a telescope)
On my tongue, oh yum! (Stick out tongue and pretend to catch a snowflake)
Snowflakes, snowflakes falling from the sky. (Repeat entire poem)

“Five Little Snowmen”
Five little snowmen standing in a row (Hold up 5 fingers)
Each with a hat and each with a bow (Put on pretend hat, then tie bow under chin)
Out came the sun and it shone all day (Make circle with arms above head)
Out came the sun and we ran away. (Run in place)
Five little snowmen standing in a row (Hold up 5 fingers)
Each with a hat and each with a bow (Put on pretend hat, then tie bow under chin)
Out came the sun and it shone all day (Make circle with arms above head)
Out came the sun and we ran away. (Run in place)
Three little snowmen standing in a row…(Hold up 3 fingers)
Two little snowmen standing in a row…(Hold up 2 fingers)
One little snowman standing all alone…(Hold up 1 finger)
No little snowmen standing in a row…(Hold up no fingers) because the sun came out and we ran away! (Run in place)

“I Can See My Breath”
I can see my breath today,
(Breathe out onto your cupped hand.)
Look how cold it is outside!
I need my mittens right away
To keep my hands nice and warm.
But first I’ll build a snowyman
Before I start to feel the chill;
His carrot nose will point the way
And guide us down the hill.
Once he’s done I’ll give him lots of hugs
So he won’t melt away;
Then I’ll take my mittens off again ‘Cause now it’s time to play!

“The Snowball Fight”
Oh what fun it is to throw A snowball at my friend–
Except when she throws one back And hits me on the end!
We make them small or big or round Just like balls made of clay;
Then when they’re packed just right We run outside to play.
We lob them through the air Until they land with thump;
But if we’re not careful They can leave quite a lump!
So come along and join our fight
And see how much you score–
Just make sure that you duck
When someone throws one at your door!

“Incy Wincy Snowman”
Incy wincy snowman
Had a very tall hat
He wore it once
He wore it not
He wore it twice
He wore it not
At last he wore it thrice
And that was all he wore Of his
Incy Wincy Snowman
