Here are the lyrics to one of the holiday songs we are learning at storytime this winter:
Sixty Million Snowflakes -by Phyllis Aleta Wolfe
When I woke up this morning, the snow was falling down. The white stuff was everywhere! I couldn’t see the ground! I couldn’t wait to bundle up and go outside to see just how many snowflakes would land on me!
There must be one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, sixty million snowflakes. Nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen sixteen, sixty million snowflakes. Sixty million snowflakes falling from the sky! If the trees and ground can catch them, so can I! Sixty million snowflakes; all I want is one! One little snowflake on my tongue! One little snowflake on my tongue!
I wore my coat and hat as I walked around outside. My footprints looked like craters that were really deep and wide! The snow was swirling ’round! I stuck my tongue out to the sky! (spoken) You’ll never guess what happened! I got snowflakes in my eye!
While on my way to school I acted like a tree; in hopes that just one snowflake would want to land on me! This time I shut my eyes and then stuck out my frozen tongue! (spoken) I would have caught a snowflake if the school bell hadn’t rung!
(spoken) Hey! I got one!
