Chirstmas Teaching Songs

Here are some great songs that are fun for
Christmas that also teach core concepts.
Five Little Bells
Five little bells hanging in a row.

The first one said, "Ring me slow."
The second one said, "Ring me fast."
The third one said, "Ring me last."
The fourth one said, "I'm a chime."
The fifth one said, "Ring me at Christmas time."
The sixth one said, "Ring me with the others."
The seventh one said, "Ring me for the mothers."
The eighth one said, "Ring me with a song."

The ninth one said, "Ring me all day long." 

Idea #1: Make bells with the ordinal numbers on them
Idea #2: Let students hold the bell and have the statement written on the back of the bell for the student to read.

Christmas Bells Sung to: "The Muffin Man"


Oh, do you hear the Christmas bells,
The Christmas bells, the Christmas bells?

Oh, do you hear the Christmas bells

I'm glad Christmas is here

Oh, can you see our Christmas tree,
Our Christmas tree, our Christmas tree?
Oh, can you see our Christmas tree?
I'm glad Christmas is here.

Oh, do you smell the gingerbread,

The gingerbread, the gingerbread?
Oh, do you smell the gingerbread?

I'm glad Christmas is here.

Oh do you taste the candy cane?
The candy cane, the candy cane?
Oh do you taste the candy cane?
I'm glad Christmas is here.

Oh do you feel the soft stocking,
the soft stocking, the soft stocking?
Oh do you feel the soft stocking?
I'm glad Christmas is here.

Idea #1: Have students point to the body part the use for that sense
Idea #2: Have examples of gingerbread to smell, stocking to feel, bell to hear, candy cane and tree.

S-A-N-T-A Sung to: "BINGO"


I know a man with a long white beard
And Santa is his name-o
S-A-N-T-A, 
S-A-N-T-A,
 S-A-N-T-A

And Santa is his name-o

He slides down the chimney with a pack on his back
And Santa is his name-o
*-A-N-T-A
, *-A-N-T-A, 
*-A-N-T-A

And Santa is his name-o

Eight little reindeer pull his sleigh
And Santa is his name-o

*-*-N-T-A, 
*-*-N-T-A, 
*-*-N-T-A
And Santa is his name-o

He wears red from his head to his toe
And Santa is his name-o
*-*-*-T-A, 
*-*-*-T-A, 
*-*-*-T-A
And Santa is his name-o

He's making his list and checking it twice
And Santa is his name-o
*-*-*-*-A, 
*-*-*-*-A, 
*-*-*-*-A
And Santa is his name-o

He likes to eat milk and cookies
And Santa is his name-o
*-*-*-*-*, 
*-*-*-*-*, 
*-*-*-*-*
And Santa is his name-o  

Idea #1: Write the letters on a whiteboard.  Each time you sing replace a letter with a clap.  I put a star in place of the letter to represent the clap.

5 Little Christmas Trees
5 little Christmas Trees
Standing all alone
Their hearts were very sad

Cause they hadn't found a home.

Then chop went the ax (pretend to chop)
And down fell the tree

And off they went with a happy family!


(continue from 4-1 Christmas Trees)

No little Christmas Trees

Standing all alone

Their hearts were very happy

Cause they all found a home!!!
Idea #1: Have the students hold a tree and countdown as the trees go home.
