January's Songs and Poems

 

Whisper a Prayer

Whisper a prayer in the morning.
Whisper a prayer at noon.
Whisper a prayer in the evening
to keep your heart in tune.

God answers prayer in the morning.
God answers prayer at noon.
God answers prayer in the evening
to keep your heart in tune.

Jesus may come in the morning.
Jesus may come at noon.
Jesus may come in the evening,
so keep your heart in tune.

 

This is the Way We Dress in Winter
(Tune: The Mulberry Bush)

(from Little Hands Fingerplays and Action Songs: Seasonal Rhymes and Creative Play for 2 to 6 Year Olds by Emily Stetson; p. 43)

This is the way we get dressed for winter,
dressed for winter, dressed for winter.
This is the way we get dressed for winter,
when it is cold outside!

Change 'get dressed for winter' to...
put on snowpants
put on our boots
put on our coats
put on our hats
put on our scarves
put on our mittens

Last line:
Let's go out and play!

 

Snow, Snow
(Tune: Row Your Boat)
(from Little Hands Fingerplays and Action Songs: Seasonal Rhymes and Creative Play for 2 to 6 Year Olds by Emily Stetson; p. 42)

Snow, snow, see the snow.
Falling to the ground.
Take some snow and pack it tight.
Make it nice and round.
Roll, roll, roll the snow.
Roll it on the ground.
Stack it tall. Don't let it fall.
A snowman in a mound!

 

Winter Pokey
(Tune: The Hokey Pokey)

You put your right mitten in.
You put your right mitten out.
You put your right mitten in.
And you shake it all about.
You do the winter pokey
and you turn yourself about.
That's what it's all about!

Other verses...
left mitten
right boot
left boot
long scaf
warm hat
snowsuit

 

Winter Flurries
(Tune: Frere Jaques)

(from More Toddlers Together: The Complete Planning Guide for Toddler Curriculum by Cynthia Catlin.; p. 172)

See the snowflakes.
See the snowflakes.
Floating down.
Floating down.
Oh, so very slowly.
Oh, so very slowly.
To the ground.
To the ground.

See the snowflakes.
See the snowflakes.
Twirling 'round.
Twirling 'round.
Blowing in the wind.
Blowing in the wind.
To the ground.
To the ground.

 

A Shopping We Will Go
(Tune: The Farmer in the Dell)
(from Perpetual Preschool)

A shopping we will go
A shopping we will go.
We will buy some _________.
A shopping we will go!

(Set out empty containers or pictures of food items. As you sing, have students take turns picking up the corresponding food item that is mentioned in the song.)
