Christmas Time
Tune: Muffin Man
I am glad it's Christmas time,
Christmas time, Christmas time.
I am glad it's Christmas time,
A special time of year.

It's time to give and time to share,
Time to love and show you care.
For friends and family everywhere,
A special time of year!

Five Little Evergreens
Five little evergreens outside in a row,
The first one said,
"Let's look at the snow."
The second one said,
"Oh-oh, it's getting cold!"
The third one said,
"Christmas is coming so I'm told."
The fourth one said,
"I hope someone decorates me."
The fifth one said,
"We'll just have to wait and see!"

Christmas Wreaths
Our Christmas wreaths
Are fat and round
Made of woodsy things
We found.
We tied brown cones
Upon the green
And stuck red berries
In between.
Upon the wreath
For our front door
We tied red ribbon from a store.

The Gingerbread Man
(Tune: Wheels on the bus)
The gingerbread man ran through the town,
through the town, through the town.
The gingerbread man ran through the town,
Singing, "You'll never catch me.
"He ran away from a /c/ /ow/,/c/ /ow/
He ran away from a cow,
Singing, "You will never catch me."
He ran away from a /sh/ /ee/ /p/,/sh/ /ee/ /p/, /sh/ /ee/ /p/,
He ran away from a sheep without a peep,
Singing, "You will never catch me."
He ran away from a /d/ /o/ /g//d/ /o/ /g/ /d/ /o/ /g/,
he ran away from a dog,
Singing, "You will never catch me."
Then he came to a /f/ /o/ /x/ /f/ /o/ /x/, /f/ /o/ /x/,
The fox sat on a box and said,
"You can trust me"Then he ate him, yes sir - ee.

Gingerbread children
Stand in a row--
Very good children
Always, you know.
They never will jump
Or kick or leap,
Or start to cry when
It's time to sleep
They never run off
Or look around
And no one has heard
Them make a sound.
Gingerbread children
Are fine to meet;
But, much better still,
They're good to eat.

Two merry blue eyes
A queer little nose
A long snowy beard
And cheeks like a rose
A round chubby man
A big bulging pack
Hurrah for Old Santa
We're glad he's come back!

The Reindeer
The reindeer has antlers
On his head.
At Christmas time
He pulls a sled.
He lives at the North Pole
Where it snows the most,
But his brown fur coat
Keeps him warm as toast.

The Reindeer Pokey
You put your antlers in.
You put your antlers out.
You put your antlers in
And you shake them all about.
You do the Reindeer Pokey
And you turn yourself around
That's what it's all about!
You put your hooves in...
You put your red nose in...
You put your fluffy tail in...
You put your reindeer body in...

A quick way to make reindeer students is to give each one a red sticky circle to put on their noses before you do the song.

Five Little Elves
Five little elves came to visit today,
And this is what I heard them say:
The first one said, "I like to play."
The second one said, "Let's hide away.
The third one said, "Let's hide in______'s shoe!"
The fourth one said, "But there's only room for two."
The fifth one said, "Then we'll need some more!"
So they took all your shoes and they ran out the door!

Put the students' names in the blank space.
This is an Aims activity in the Winter book.
I like to read The Elves and the Shoemaker.

I've Been Waiting For Christmas
I've been waiting for Christmas,
And it's almost here.
I've been waiting for Christmas,
Santa's getting near.
Can't you hear the sleigh bells ringing?
Reindeer up so high.
Can't you hear the children singing,
As they watch the sky?
