It has been bitter cold here in Iowa.  However, we are looking for a warm-up next week. Yes, sometimes above 30 is considered warm! LOL  Here it is:

Since we are still "enjoying" the winter weather, I thought I would share some fingerplays for winter. I apologize for not being able to quote the exact source of each one.  I pulled them from a file. ;) Please let me know if you know any so I can give credit.

Snowflakes falling, falling down, (flutter fingers)

The wind blows them round and round. (circular motion)

they whip and whirl in the air

Then land softly everywhere.


I built a snowman out of three balls - 1, 2, 3 (three fingers)

One ball was small, one middle-sized, and one as big as can be!

(form three circles, each larger)


I like to play in the snow, (flutter fingers)

But every time I want to go,

I hear my mom say, (hand to ear)

"It's a very cold day, (shiver)

Bundle up, zip up, (pretend to dress)

Boots, gloves, and hat on."

After I dress from here down, (point to head then toe)

I feel as clumsy as a clown. (act clumsy)

Dressing up sure is a bummer! (shake head sideways)

Why isn't there snow in the summer?
