The first day of winter by Denise Fleming

A snowman comes alive as the child building it adds pieces during the first ten days of winter.


Snow on the rooftops (Make pointed roof shape with arms.)
Snow on the trees (Hold arms up like tree branches.)
Snow on the green grass (Wave hands over ground like your touching the grass.)
And snow on me! (Point to self.)

Snow on my mittens (Hold up hands like mittens.)
Snow on my nose. (Touch nose.)
Snow on my head. (Touch head.)
And snow on my toes. (Touch toes.)

Twirling, swirling, whirling down (Spin in circle.)
Down and down and down and down (Gently wiggle fingers like snow falling and crouch down.)
