Little Snowman

(to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot")

I'm a little snowman round and fat,
Here are my mittens,
Here is my hat.
Add a little scarf and a carrot nose.
You stand so tall when the cold wind blows.

Snow Towards Evening

by Melville Cane

 

Suddenly the sky turned gray,
The day,
Which had been bitter and chill,
Grew soft and still.
Quietly
From some invisible blossoming tree
Millions of petals cool and white
Drifted and blew
Lifted and flew,
Fell with the falling night.


---


Snowflakes

(to the tune of "twinkle, twinkle little star")

Snowflakes, snowflakes falling down,
On the trees and on the ground.
I will build a man of snow,
Tall black hat and eyes of coal,
If the sun comes out today,
I will watch you melt away!

I Heard a Bird Sing

by Oliver Herford

 

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember:
"We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,"
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.

December
In December we're happy
Whatever the weather
For Christmas helps people
Be happy together.

A carpet of snow
Covers the ground,
The sweet sound of carols
Is heard all around.

Candles and stars
And Christmas tree lights
Twinkle and glow
In the velvet night.-

I love winter! Winter is cold.
It's Christmas with sleds.
It's warm snuggly beds.
It's silver snowflakes.
It's skating on lakes.
It's snowmen that stand
In a snowy white land.
It's bluejays that feed
On sunflower seed.
It's angels that pose
In wintertime clothes.
It's a polka-dot sky.
It's winter. That's why.......
I love winter.

Investigating the First Thanksgiving

In this fun, award-winning activity, take on the role of ?history detectives? to investigate what really happened at the famous 1621 celebration. (Hint: It was a lot more than just a feast!) Along the way, you'll read a letter written by an eyewitness to the event, learn about Wampanoag traditions of giving thanks, and visit Pilgrim Mary Allerton?s home. As a final activity, you can design and print their own Thanksgiving exhibit panel.
