Can You Show Me…?

(Tune: “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”)


Can you show me the brown bear?

Brown bear, brown bear?

Can you show me the brown bear?

And wave it in the air?

White… black… green… pink


Hold It High – Choose one bear from handouts

Hold your bear high and stand

Now wave it around in gestures grand!

Hold your bear below your chin

Now hold it way up high again


Hold your bear against your nose

Now touch the bear to your toes

Touch your bear to the ground

Now wave that bear all around!


Hold your bear in front of you

Now turn around – one time, two!

Hold your bear and jump up high!

Now let your bear fly fly fly (throw it in the air)

BOUNCE RHYME (bounce along with child in lap)


I Am a Snowman

I am a snowman, cold and white.

I stand up tall, all through the night.

(bounce up high)

With a carrot nose and head held high,

Two lumps of coal to make my eyes.

I have a muffler made of red,

And a tall black hat upon my head.


The sun is coming out! Oh, my!

I think that I am going to cry.

Yesterday, I was so big and round,

Now, I’m a puddle lying on the ground.

(swing child down low)



ACTION RHYMES


Melting Snowmen

Here’s a snowman round and fat

(make circle with arms)

Out comes the sun and melts his hat

(touch head)

Here’s a snowman with a scarf of red;

Out comes the sun and melts his head

(touch head)

Here’s a snowman, fit as a fiddle;

Out comes the sun and melts his middle

(touch stomach)

Here’s a snowman who waits for dawn;

Out comes the sun and he’s all gone!


Merry Snowflakes

Merry little snowflakes falling to the ground,

(fingers flutter life falling snow)

They’re landing on the treetops, covering our town.

They softly fall on noses

(touch nose)

And make our hair look white.

(touch hair)

They seem to call, ‘Come out and play!’

(‘come here’ motion)

As they fall throughout the night.


I’m a Friendly Snowman

(Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)


I’m a friendly snowman big and fat.

(Stretch arms out to the sides.)

Here is my tummy and here is my hat.

(Point to the tummy and top of the head.)

I’m a happy fellow, here’s my nose.

(Smile and point to nose)

I’m all snow from my head to my toes.

(Point to head and to toes.)

I have two bright eyes so I can see.

(Point to eyes.)

All the snow falling down on me.

(Wiggle fingers downward.)

When the weather’s cold I’m strong and tall.

(Stand up tall.)

But when it’s warm I get very small.

(Crouch down low.)


Chubby Little Snowman

A chubby little snowman

(Make a round shape with arms)

Had a carrot nose

(Point to nose.)

Along came a bunny

(Hold up two fingers to make a bunny.)

And what do you suppose?

(shrug shoulders)

That hungry little bunny

(rub tummy)

Looking for his lunch

(hand over eyes, looking)

Ate that little snowman’s nose

(Pretend to grab nose.)

Nibble nibble crunch!

(Pretend to eat carrot)
