Christmas Songs

There's A Little Elf Sitting On My Nose
There's a little elf sitting on my nose
There's a little elf sitting on my nose
He is sitting on my nose, then off away he goes
There's a little elf sitting on my nose

There's a little elf sitting on my knee
There's a little elf sitting on my knee
He is sitting on my knee, then off away he flees
There's a little elf sitting on my knee

There's a little elf sitting on my head
There's a little elf sitting on my head
He is sitting on my head, then off he goes to bed
There's a little elf sitting on my head

Idea: Clap or pat twice after each verse.  Use a high "elf voice" to sing the song.

Christmas Cheer Sung to "Mary Had A Little Lamb"
Clap your hands with Christmas Cheer
Christmas Cheer, Christmas Cheer
Clap your hands with Christmas Cheer
Very best time of the year.

Alternatives: Spin around, Bend your knees, Reach up high, Dance around, Pat your knees, March in place, Jump around

Can Eight Brown Reindeer Pull Santa's Sleigh?
Eight brown reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh
One fell down and ran away
The elf called Santa and Santa said
"Can Seven brown reindeer pull Santa's sleigh"

Continue counting until one is left
One brown reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh
He fell down and ran away
The elf called Santa and Santa said
"Call Rudolph!"

Idea: Have eight students line up and each time you take a reindeer away, one student sits down.
Also you could have pictures of eight reindeer or foam reindeers and take one away each time.

Christmas time is near.

Christmas time is near.
It’s time to trim the tree.
It’s time to trim the tree.
Merry Christmas everyone.
It’s time to trim the tree.
It’s time to wrap the gifts.
It’s time to wrap the gifts.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
It’s time to wrap the gifts.
It’s time to hang the stocking.
It’s time to hang the stocking.
Merry Christmas everyone.
It’s time to hang the stocking.
Santa will soon be here.
Santa will soon be here.
Merry Christmas everyone.
Santa will soon be here.

Behavior Management Motivators

   1.  Tried and true:  “I like how Henry is sitting quietly”    2.  Scoreboard:  Tallies for different groups, boys and girls, teacher vs. student, table groups.  I did this all last year and it was not even for a prize.  Kids love competition!    3.  Token economy:  Give the class a cotton ball or marble in a jar for when they are following the rules or getting their work done.    4.  Special Friend:  Have a special animal the student gets to sit with if they do an awesome job.  The special friend will only sit with a quiet friend.    5.  Special Something:  Special sticker, stamp or candy (it works) for those who are following directions.    6.  Selfies:  Take a video or picture (or pretend to).  Tell them you might send this to their parents so they need to be on their best behavior!    7.  Super Spot:  Draw a smiley face or use scented lip balm to make a spot.    8.  Mystery Student:  Pick a random student to watch for good behavior.  Pi
