The month of January is supposed to be our ‘cold weather’ month.  Although the forecast is for warmer and wetter rather than cold and snow. This week we will be talking about cold weather, snow and snowmen.  If the chilly weather returns you can point out the frost to your child. We will be introducing Bear and getting him dressed for warmth.  

Winter Songs and Poems

It is Snowing

It is snowing, it is snowing

All around, all around

Soft and pretty snowflakes

Soft and pretty snowflakes

On the ground, on the ground.


I’m a chubby snowman short and fat

Here is my broomstick and here is my hat

When the sun come out and shines all day

I just start to melt away….

Oh no I’m a puddle!

Little Snowman

A chubby little snowman with a carrot nose

Along came a bunny and what do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny looking for some lunch

Ate that snowman’s carrot nose crunch, crunch, crunch

Mitten Song

Thumbs in the thumb place, fingers all together.

This is the song we sing in mitten weather

When it is cold it doesn’t matter whether 

mittens are wool or finest leather.

Thumbs in the thumb place fingers all together

This is the song we sing in mitten weather.


The cold wind doth blow

And we shall have snow

What will poor robin do then, poor thing?

She will sit in the barn

And keep herself warm

And hide her head under her wing. Poor thing.
