READY FOR ANOTHER WEEK?!
Yeah…..last week was a doozy here in the USA. You don’t need me to go into it or recap it for you, I’m sure. That’s not what you come to me for! But, like, Holy Cow, I’m exhausted! I’m sure you are too. Whether from balancing the news cycle while trying to teach eager little ones back from holiday break, or from trying to get organized and implement new systems (New Year! New Planners! LoL!) or just from, well, continuing to live through the Global Pandemic – it’s exhausting.
On the days when I’m so tired, I take it one minute at a time, step by step. And I just try and get present to the moment. It’s the best thing I can do for my daughter and my students. The energy I need is there, in the moment, with those people. And one of the best way to get in the moment WITH little ones (they are ALWAYS in the moment, themselves! Right?!) is movement! So, I’ve got another fun winter video for this week to do just that.
THIS WEEK’S VIDEO IS…
This week I’ve got for you a perfect Winter Snowman Rhyme for Preschool. it is a rhyme and fingerplay. And much like last week’s video, I’m A Little Snowman, this week’s has a fun surprise ending that the kiddos love. It involves a snowman and…. a bunny! I teach the motions, and then we do it three times together. Lyrics are on the screen in the video.
EARLY LEARNING CONCEPTS CHILDREN WILL GET FROM THIS WINTER SNOWMAN RHYME VIDEO…
- Rhythm! This rhyme has a real solid rhythm to it which aids in learning the words and motions. And it can be a fun one to get out the Rhythm Sticks for!
- Fine & Gross Motor Skills! There is a motion for each line of the song – keeping it simple to learn, but with enough motions to keep the little ones engaged. You can do this one sitting and doing just the arm and hand motions, or you can stand up to BE the snowman and to HOP like bunnies.
- Storytelling! I love this rhyme because it tells a quick story. There are do characters, the bunny has a “problem” and finds a “solution” that makes the kids giggle. If you are working on story elements at all, you can talk about beginning, middle and end, problems and solutions, or even get creative and come up with alternate endings!

MORE FUN TO COME….
I’ve got some fun things to come in 2021 – including an album of NEW MISS NINA MUSIC!
But I’m really interested in WHAT YOU WANT! I’ll be sending out a survey soon to get a feel for WHAT YOU WANT FROM MISS NINA, so I can get to creating it for you. Keep an eye on your inbox. And be sure and follow me on Instagram and Facebook as well!
ENJOY this week’s video! Feel free to use at home, in your classes and daycares, and SHARE!
