Cap Mittens Boots...

Inspired by last week's post about The Mitten, I created a short storytime for my daughter's preschool class.    For more ideas about games, crafts, and skill building exercises look for Pam Schiller's Bountiful Earth: 25 Songs and Over 300 Activities for Young Children (Gryphon House, Inc, 2006)


Cap, Mittens, Boots, and Scarf (Tune: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes)
by Pam Schiller

Caps, mittens, boots, and scarf,
boots and scarf!

Caps, mittens, boots, and scarf,
boots and scarf!
Shoes and socks and coat and sun
Keep my warm for winter fun,
Winter fun!

Five Pairs of Dirty Socks

5 pairs of dirty socks on my bedroom floor
Mom washed the blue pair and then there were 4

4 pairs of dirty socks that belong to me
Mom washed the red pair and then there were 3

3 pairs of dirty socks, What’s a kid to do?
Mom washed the green pair and then there were2

2 pairs of dirty socks, I wear them when I run.
Mom washed the purple pair and then there was 1.

1 pair of dirty socks, one and only one,
Mom washed the last pair, my favorite pair of all!.

No more dirty socks, Mom washed them all today,
But wait until tomorrow, cause there’s more on the way!
