 DAY 1, 2, AND 3 AMI/SNOW DAY LESSON PLANS - Kindergarten

Directions: Sing one of these alphabet songs for a family member.

Baa-Baa Black Sheep

Baa-baa black sheep, Have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

One for the master and one for the dame.

And one for the little boy who lives down the lane.

 Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

All the kings horses and all the kings men

Couldn’t put Humpty together again!

 Eensy Weensy Spider

The eensy weensy spider went up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider out

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain

And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Do your Ears hang low?

Do your ears hang low?

Do they wobble to and fro?

Can you tie ‘em in a knot?

Can you tie ‘em in a bow?

Can you throw them o’er your shoulder

Like a continental soldier?

Do your ears hang low?

 Five Little Monkeys

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed

One fell off and bumped his head.

Momma called the doctor and the doctor said,

No more monkeys jumping on the bed.

Four little monkeys... (same words as above)

Three little monkeys...

Two little monkeys...

One little monkey...

No little monkeys jumping on the bed

None fell off and bumped their heads.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

Put those monkeys back to bed.

Grand Old Duke of York

Oh, the grand old duke of York he had ten thousand men

He marched them up to the top of the hill

And marched them down again

And when they were up, they were up

And when they were down, they were down

And when they were only half-way up

They were neither up or down.
