    Is anyone else doing a winter program? How long does your program usually last? What songs/poems do you do?

    This is our first year having a program, and we want to keep it season themed since we're in a public school. So far we know that my kids (the fours) are going to act out the story The Mitten. We also know that we want to do Jingle Bells with some musical instruments and a poem or two-- but I'm not sure what order to do it in, or how to structure it. Any advice would be appreciated! TIA

    My 3's did this poem one year...

    I made myself a snowball
    Just as perfect as can be
    I thought I'd keep it as a pet
    And let it sleep with me.
    I gave it some pajamas
    and a pillow for its head
    Then last night it ran away...
    but first, it wet the bed!

    We also did a song about a snowball that is to the tune of "Take em out to the ballgame." It was pretty cute and at the end, they got to throw a styrofoam "snowball" at the audience.

    Our 3's and 4's class was in the all-school program last year, they just shook jingle bells to a jazzy version of the Jingle Bell song on CD, and some of them sang along.

    You can do 'The MItten" to the tune of 'Farmer in the Dell"
    The mitten in the snow,
    The mitten in the snow,
    Help us please so we don't freeze
    The mitten in the snow.

    The __ squeezes in,
    the ___ squeeze is,
    Help us please so we don't freeze,
    The ___ squeezes in

    (Each animal gets its own versoe)

    At the end...
    The mouse says "Achoo!"
    The mouse says "AChoo!"
    All the animals fly cut
    Of the mitten in the snow.

    When we did that one, we had all the kids singing (we had visuals to help them), and the not-as-shy kids wore animals masks and hit behind our "mitten" (a table onstage with a mitten posterboard). It was pretty cute.
