March Songs



It is March and It’s Time…

It is March and It’s time to have some fun, Yee-haw

It is March and it’s time to have some fun, Yee-haw

Signs of spring are everywhere

Flowers bloom, birds fill the air

It is March and it’s time to have some fun, Yee-haw


Gentleness

Gentleness. Gentleness

Help me practice gentleness

Being careful doing what I should

Help me choose that which is good

Rain and Thunder

Rain and Thunder,

Rain and thunder

Boom Boom Boom

Boom Boom Boom

See the flash of lightning

Oh! It’s so exciting!

You Are My Sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine!

You make me happy when skies are gray.

You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you;

Please don’t take my sunshine away.

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping

I dreamed I held you in my arms.

When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken

So I hung my head and cried.

Have you Ever Seen a Princess? (Have you ever seen a Lassie)

Have you ever seen a a princess, a princess, a princess

Have you ever seen a princess, curtsey just so.

Have you ever seen a prince, a prince, a prince

Have you ever seen a prince, bow so low.

Here’s the Cross (Frere Jacques)

Here’s the cross (2x)

Jesus died (2x)

Here is the tomb, empty, empty tomb

Jesus lives, Jesus saves

I Can Sing a Rainbow

Red, orange, yellow, green,

And blue, indigo, violet too—

I can sing a rainbow,

Sing a rainbow

Sing a rainbow, too!

Listen with your eyes, listen with your eyes

And sing everything you see.

You can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow

Sing along with me

I’m a Little Dragon (I’m a Little Teapot)

I’m a little dragon strong and stout

Here is my tail and here is my snout

If I get upset, you’d better watch out!

I’ll take a breath and blow fire out!

Brush your front teeth, brush your back teeth

Brush the bottom and the top

If you brush them each and everyday

Then your smile will never stop

Brushing Teeth (Twinkle, Twinkle)

Here’s my toothpaste, here’s my brush.

I won’t hurry. I won’t rush.

Working hard to keep teeth clean

Front and back and in between.

When I brush for quite a while,

I will have a happy smile.

I love the flowers; I love the daffodils;

I love the fireside when all the lights are low

I Love You and God Loves You

I love you and God loves you

And that’s the way it should be.

And that’s the way it should be.

I Love You, Lord

I love you, Lord

And I lift my voice to worship You

Oh, my soul rejoice

Take joy, my king

In what you hear

May it be a sweet, sweet sound

In your ear.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS

We are beginning to get caught up with book orders. The delay with Scholastic was quite lengthy and I didn’t want to start up again until we were back in school and orders came in. Please feel free to order online - the next order will be advised soon, just waiting for the new catalog! Let me know if you submit an order before then so I can complete it for you and have it sent to the school to save on shipping fees. The online ordering code is Y3CJY.


First Circle of Friends Preschool and Kindergarten Newsletter 12-3-21.

Season’s Greetings!! Green Day is the 2nd & 3rd of December!

We will be having a Christmas party on Dec 16th for the T/Th 3s and the 17th for the rest of the kids. If you could please bring something for our Christmas parties, please have it to the school by Tuesday, 12/14. Thank you, you are appreciated! A sign-up sheet will be going out Dec. 1st or 2nd, let me know if you haven’t received it by Dec 6th.

**We will be having an ornament gift exchange at the Christmas Party also. Please have a gift-wrapped ornament with a gift tag on it showing who it is from only, leave the TO: blank. Please bring in by Tuesday, 14Dec!**

CALENDAR -The last day for classes in December is Friday, 12/17. Classes resume Jan. 4.-Black and White Day is Jan. 6 for Tuesday/Thursday 3s, and Jan. 7 for all other classes. -MLK Day is Monday, January 17th, so there will be no kindergarten class that day. -The Pajama Party is on January 27 for the Tuesday/Thursday 3s, and 1/28 for all other classes.

-Grandparent’s paperwork isn’t due back until after Christmas. Teachers wanted to send them home during holiday breaks so that when seeing your grandparents, you could fill it out! So, don’t worry about getting them back until after Christmas break. We will let you know that due date in the Jan. or Feb. newsletter.

The next tuition payment is on Christmas Day, December 25! If you pay with a check, you’re welcome to take care of that prior to the last day of school. Let me know if that doesn’t work for you. If you pay with a credit card through Square, go ahead and make your payment shortly after the notification you receive on 12/25. Christmas break makes the timing tricky.

Enrollment: We have two openings in the PM 3s class, if you know of anyone needing preschool for their 3 year-old!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

December Songs


The Angels Sing La la la

The angel sing, La la la,

The Shepherds Laugh Ha Ha Ha,

The donkey brays hee-haw, hee-haw

The crows all caw—caw caw caw!

Moo-oo lows the cow, baa baa bleats the sheep

Mary smiles and Joseph leaps—

Moo-oo lows the cow, baa baa bleats the sheep

How on earth can God’s baby sleep?

(repeat last line, speaking loudly!)

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger,

No crib for a bed

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky looked down where He lay

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing the poor Baby awakes

But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes.

I love Thee Lord Jesus look down from the sky

And stay by my side ‘til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay

Close by me forever and love me I pray.

Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care

And take us to Heaven to live with Thee there.

Happy Birthday, Jesus

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

We love you dear Jesus

Happy birthday to you.

I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy, Down in My Heart

I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, down in my heart, down in my heart. I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, down in my heart to stay!

And I’m so happy, so very happy

I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart

Down in my heart!

And I’m so happy, so very happy

I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart!

Peace that passes understanding

Love of Jesus

It’s December and It’s Time…

It’s December and it’s time to have some fun!

Yee-haw!

It’s December and it’s time to have some fun!

Yee-haw!

It’s December and it’s time to have some fun!

Yee-haw!

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring.

Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun

Now the jingle bell rock has begun!

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time.

Dancing and prancing in jingle bell square

In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time

To rock the night away.

Jingle bell time is a swell time

To go gliding in a one horse sleigh.

Giddy up jingle horse pick up your feet

Jingle around the clock.

Mix and mingle in a jingling beat

That’s the jingle bell

That’s the jingle bell

That’s the jingle bell rock!!

J-O-Y This it Means to Me

J-O-Y, J-O-Y This it means to me

Jesus first, yourself last and others in between.

There Was a Little Baby

There was a little baby, oh my Lord. (3x)

Way down in Bethlehem, way down in Bethlehem.

They laid Him in the manger, oh my Lord. (3x)

Way down…

They named the baby Jesus, oh my Lord. (3x)

Way down in Bethlehem, way down in Bethlehem.
