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.

Dance to "Boogie Woogie Santa" on CD

Ring the Bells (from Perry Public Library)
Ring, ring, ring the bells.
Ring them loud and clear!
To tell the children everywhere,
Christmas time is near!

Sing "Jingle Bells" with bells

Craft: We decorated construction paper trees with circle sticker "ornaments".

Literacy tip of the week:  There are many great literacy building activities that go along with the holidays. For instance have your child sign their name on holiday cards, or use cookie dough to make letters of the alphabet.
