    Merry Christmas Elf-one of our favortes
    (To the tune of Pop goes the weasel)
    Round and round the Christmas tree,
    Santa chased the elf.
    Santa caught him and gave him a kiss.

    I'm a Little Reindeer
    (Tune I'm a little teapot)
    I’m a little reindeer, ready to fly.
    I’ll pull Santa’s sleigh up in the sky.
    Christmas is here; we can’t be late.
    All the children just cannot wait!

    5 Little Reindeer
    5 little reindeer, standing by the gate,
    1st one said, "Hurry, don't be late."

    3rd one said, "Careful, now, don't fall."
    4th one said, "It's time to load the toys!"

    5 Little Christmas Trees (a fingerplay)-one of our favorites last year
    5 little Christmas Trees
    Standing all alone
    Their heart were very sad
    'Cause they hadn't found a home.
    Then chop went the axe
    And down fell the tree
    And off they went with a happy family!
    (continue from 4-1 Christmas Trees)
    No little Christmas Trees
    Standing all alone
    Their hearts were very happy
    Cause they all had found a home.
    Christmastime
    This Old Man
    Christmastime, Christmastime,
    Is a very special time,
    With a tree and gifts and goodies to eat.
    Christmastime is really neat!

    Christmas Song
    "I'm A Little Teapot"
    I'm a little snowman, round and fat,
    Here is my scarf and here is my hat.
    When Christmas comes around just hear me shout,
    "Here comes Santa. You better watch out!"

    Little Green Tree (I'm A Little Teapot)
    I'm a little green tree in the house,
    Here is my trunk, (Raise arms up straight.)
    Here are my boughs. (Hold arms out to sides.)
    Decorate me now with lights so fine, (Move hands back and forth across body.)
    Then plug me in and watch me shine! (Hold arms out to sides and smile.)


    Ring, Ring, Ring The Bells "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"
    Ring, ring, ring the bells.
    Ring them loud and clear.
    To tell the children everywhere
    That Christmas time is here.

    Where Is Santa?
    "Are You Sleeping?"
    Where is Santa? Where is Santa? (Put hands behind back.)
    Here I am! Here I am! (Make a big belly with arms.)
    Merry, Merry Christmas! (Sing in Santa voice.)
    Merry, Merry Christmas! Ho-ho-ho! Ho-ho-ho! (Put hands behind back.)


    Christmas!!
    (Tune: "Jingle Bells")
    C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S is here
    That's how we spell Christmas
    It's the best time of the year!

    C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S is here
