5 Jolly Snowmen... Help I've Forgotton The Words!?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi. My first post here. This year for Christmas we are putting on a performance for parents and we are deciding on what songs the children can sing. I'd love to do 5 jolly snowmen with them but have forgotton the words and the tune it is sung to. I can remember when I was a student children doing it one Christmas at another nursery and it involved them melting when the sun came out. It was a great song and I know they had 5 of the children wrapped up as snowmen and another doing the chimes. I think the other children played bells along to the song. I can remember it was a really catchy song! I've been trying to find the words and have found another version but not this one.

Can anyone help me out here please??? I reckon it will be fun to learn with my group (2-3 years)

:o:D

Not sure if its the right one but the version i know is

 

5 little snowmen fat,

each with a funny hat,

out came the sun and melted one,

aah, aah,

what a sad thing was that,

down, down, down.

 

I know the tune but I can't remember another song that has a similar tune sorry!

hope that helps x

Hello there Amethyst... welcome to the site... love the avatar.... I have got a version of '5 jolly snowmen' at school so will check it for you on Monday... but I'm sure a wonderful person on this site might remember it before then !! Hope you enjoy the site as much as I always do !

Hi Amethyst and welcome. I'm sure you'll soon be addicted on here!!

 

Good luck with your snowman quest. Cazza's suggestion sounds good, even if iys not the one you were looking for. I think Ive used a different one, seem to remember the children bringing hats and scarves for props, so will go on a search for you! Have you looked in The Little Puffin collection?

Is this it?

 

5 jolly snowmen standing in a row

Each with a hat and a big red bow

Out came the sun and it stayed all day

And one little snowman melted away.

 

4 jolly snowmen etc....

 

Don't have a tune though - sorry

Sorry

missed out this bit - :o

Each child has a black top hat (inexpensive plastic ones) and red paper bows for round their neck

Another child is the sun and stands behind each child as we recite the poem. The children slowly drop to the floor as they melt.

Theres a jolly jolly jolly jolly snowman

With a carrot for a nose

Two black eyes

And a long long scarf

Every-time you see him

He will make you laugh

Theres a jolly jolly jolly jolly snowman

Who never wheres a frown

He says HO HO HO

When it starts to snow

Hes the happiest

Man in town.

This is the snowman song that I sing with my children. I could sing you the tune, but don't know how to describe it!

 

Five Little Snowmen

 

Five little snowmen standing in a line

One, two, three, four, five so fine

Melt in the sunshine with a sigh

We'll see you next year bye, bye

 

Four little snowmen standing in a line

One, two, three, four, shh so fine

Melt in the sunshine with a sigh

We'll see you next year bye, bye

 

Three little snowmen standing in a line

One, two, three, shh, shh so fine

Melt in the sunshine with a sigh

We'll see you next year bye, bye

 

Two little snowmen standing in a line

One, two, shh, shh, shh so fine

Melt in the sunshine with a sigh

We'll see you next year bye, bye

 

One little snowmen standing on his own

One, shh, shh, shh, shh so fine

Melt in the sunshine with a sigh

We'll see you next year bye, bye

 

Five little snowmen standing in a line

One, two, three, four, five so fine

Stand in the sunshine with a smile

We'll see you next year bye, bye

We'll see you next year bye, bye

You could try this one

 

http://www.mrsjones.org/songs/snowmen.html

http://www.preschoolrainbow.org/occasion-rhymes.htm

 

this one has a whole range of snowmen rhymes and songs

 

http://www.everythingpreschool.com/themes/snowmen/songs.htm

 

and so does this one - probably a lot the same

 

http://www.earlyliterature.ecsd.net/snowman.htm

 

Sorry, this probably isn't much use in your quest for the song but it had stacks of snowman activities on it so thought I would include it! :D

Just trying to be creative with Sue J's Jolly Snowmen rhyme... what about this

 

5 Jolly Santas standing in a row

Each with a present and a big red bow

Along came Rudolph with a sled one day

Got a jolly Santa and took him far away :o

 

and so on and so forth... ooh the variations could be limitless

now there's a challenge :D

All the links are lovely.

 

This is nothing to do with the topic but how old are kindergarten children in America? Is it the equivilant to our reception year and do they start at the same time?

 

I,ve always wondered amd never really found out when other school's begin full time education

Perhaps Rocket meant to reply to the playdough thread?? :D It's easy done and a mistake many of us have made. :)

 

Cazza, I think that kindergarten ages range depending on which state you're in, most starting between 4/5 years. However, the age of the start of compulsary education is as late as 8yr old in some states I believe.

Five little snowmen short and fat

Here's their scarf and here's their hat

When the snow is falling come and play

Quick, before one melts away . (clap on quick )

 

4 little ---- ect

To the tune of I'm a little tea pot

Hurray! I've remembered it at long last. Once I'd stopped thinking too hard about it.

5 jolly snowmen ready to play, (snowmen dance in circle)

ready to play, ready to play,

Out came the sunshine to warm up the day, (another child was sun waving arms about)

and 1 jolly snowman melted away. (one child fell to ground slowly with a wiggle)

 

And so on until 0 left.

last verse was

0 jolly snowmen no-one to play, (children all sitting look sad and shake heads)

no-one to play, no-one to play,

Along came the children to brighten the day, (big smiles and jump up and wave)

They built 5 more snowmen and shouted 'Hooray'

 

:D
