♫ Snowflake, snowflake, [Snowflake gesture.]
little snowflake. [Little gesture. Snowflake gesture.]
Little snowflake [Little gesture. Snowflake gesture.]
falling from the sky. [Snowflake gesture moving down.]
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
falling, falling, falling, falling... [Snowflake gesture moving down very slowly.]
falling on my head. [Snowflake gesture landing on top of your head.]

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Little snowflake falling from the sky.
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
falling, falling, falling, falling...
falling on my nose. [Snowflake gesture landing on your nose.]

falling in my hand. [Snowflake gesture landing in your hand.]

Falling on my head.
Falling on my nose.
Falling in my hand.

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake... ♫

Classroom Benefits

Use this song to introduce and review parts of the body. After learning the song, you can use the sing-along version and introduce different parts of the body. This is also a lovely song for holiday/winter performances. Since there is no reference to Christmas, this song can be used all winter long.

Activity Ideas

Sing-Along
Use this song to teach/review different body parts. “Falling on my arm. Falling on my leg. Falling on my tongue.” Try this song in the springtime and use raindrops instead of snowflakes. Or in autumn, sing about colored leaves falling from the trees. “Red leaf, red leaf, little red leaf. Little red leaf falling from the tree.” 1

Falling snowflakes
Before class, make four snowflakes using white paper. Tape a magnet to the back of each snowflake and put them across the top of the whiteboard. At the bottom of the whiteboard, draw a simple winter scene with a snowman and some trees. On the sides of the whiteboard, draw six to ten evenly spaced dots from the top to the bottom. Divide the class into four teams and have them stand in lines facing the whiteboard. Show the four students at the front of the line a Christmas picture card. The first student to name the card gets to move his team's snowflake one dot down the whiteboard. Those four students move to the back of the line and the next four students try to the name the next card. The first team to have its snowflake reach the ground is the winner. For wrong answers, or unruly behavior, the teacher can "blow" a snowflake up one dot! 2
