The second podcast this month is called SNOW DAY. In our story Levi finds out what it’s like to stay home when school is closed because it’s a snow day. The day is not quite what he expected.
We have two great snow songs, one about building a snowman, and one about falling snow. They are both fun action songs. In the first song, “I Can Build a Snowman,” Bethany sings about the snowman getting tall, tall, tall, and then small, small, small as it melts in the sun. Children love to be the snowman as we sing, showing how tall they can be, and then slowly melting to the ground.
The actions are obvious in the song “Snow is Falling All Around” where you can show the snowflakes landing on the roof tops, the ground and on your head, hands and toes. When children know this song very well, we will “sing” it silently, keeping the words in our heads and only doing the actions. This requires a lot of concentration. It is also a very adaptable song where instead of snow falling all around you can have:
Rain is falling,
Wind is blowing,
Sun is shining,
