Tall, tall, tall.
In the sun he melted,
Small, small, small.

Watch the snowflakes, watch the snowflakes,
Falling down, falling down,
Oh so very slowly, Oh so very slowly,
To the ground, to the ground.

Did you ever see a snowman? (to the tune of "Did you ever see a Laddie?")
Did you ever see a snowman, a snowman, a snowman?

This way and that way and this way and that way.

Snowky Pokey (from Everything Preschool)

You take your right mitten out.

That's what it's all about!
Other verses can include boot, hat, whole self, etc.

Toaster Song (from Literary Commentary)
I'm toast in the toaster and I'm getting really hot, (bounce)
Tick tock, Tick tock, (rock back and forth)
Up I pop! (jump)

Waves at the Beach (to the tune of "Wheels on the Bus", from Preschool Education)
The waves at the beach go up and down, up and down, (move up and down)
The waves at the beach go up and down, all day long.

The crabs at the beach crawl back and forth, (crawl)
The lobsters at the beach go snap, snap, snap, (clap hands together)

Summer Days (from Hummingbird Educational Resources)
In the summer, when days are hot (wipe forehead)
I like to find a shady spot (sit)
And hardly move a single bit (stay still)
And sit, and sit, and sit, then ZIP! (jump up)

Craft: We colored a beach scene printout.

Literacy tip of the week: Summer road trips are a great time to talk with your child about the world around them and introduce new vocabulary!
