Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Oh! You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why:
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He's making a list,
Checking it twice,
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He sees you when you're sleeping,
He knows when you're awake.
He knows if you've been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

Oh! You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why:
Santa Claus is coming to town!

 

Santa's Cookies

Make a class supply of cookie cutouts and label each one with a different child's
 name in class.  Provide access to a large decorative plate.  Hold up a cookie and
 have students identify the name.  Then lead them in reciting the chant below.
 At the end of the chant, have the child place her cookie on Santa's plate.

All:  Who will add a cookie to Santa's plate?
All:  (   Child's name  )  will add a cookie to Santa's plate.
Child:  Who, me?
Teacher:  Yes, you!
Child:  Okay, will do!

 

Here Comes Santa Claus

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus lane.
He's got a bag that is filled with toys
For the boys and girls again.
Bells are ringing, children singing,
All is merry and bright,
Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

 

Up On the Housetop

Up on the housetop reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Claus,
Down through the chimney with lots of toys,
All for the little ones Christmas joys.
Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn't go'
Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn't go?
Oh, up on the housetop,
Click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with good St. Nick.

 

Where is Santa?

(Sung to the tune of: "Are You Sleeping?')

Where is Santa? Where is Santa? (hands behind back)
Here I am! Here I am! (arms out in front making a belly shape!)
Merry, Merry Christmas! Merry, Merry, Christmas!

Ho! Ho! Ho!, Ho! Ho! Ho!

Here is a great big Christmas tree Trimmed with lights and balls.
