Let's All Do a Little Clapping 
(Tune:"We Wish You a Merry Christmas", from Storytime Katie)
Let's all do a little clapping,
Let's all do a little clapping,
Let's all do a little clapping,
and spread Christmas cheer!

Where is Santa? (from Step by Step Childcare)
Where is Santa? Where is Santa? (put hands behind back)
Here I am! Here I am! (make belly with arms)
Merry, Merry Christmas!
Ho ho ho! Ho ho ho! (put hands behind back)

The Reindeer Pokey
You put your antlers in, (bow head forward)
You put your antlers out, (lean head back)
You put your antlers in,
And you shake them all about (shake head)
You do the Reindeer Pokey and you turn yourself around,
That's what it's all about!
Other verses include hooves (feet), tail, red nose, and reindeer self.

Rudolph, Rudolph (from Sunflower Storytime)
Rudolph, Rudolph, turn around around.
Rudolph, Rudolph, touch the ground.
Rudolph, Rudolph, touch your nose.
Rudolph, Rudolph, touch your toes.
Rudolph, Rudolph, jump up high.
Rudolph, Rudolph, touch the sky.
Rudolph, Rudolph, touch your knees.
Rudolph, Rudolph, sit down please. 

Jingle Bells (with bells)

Craft: We made wreaths out of paper plates and torn paper.

Literacy tip of the week: Share a favorite holiday story with your child. It is a great way to help them develop positive associations with books and reading.
