Winter Vocabulary

Read the poem and discuss new vocabulary.

 

Jack Frost (by Gabriel Setoun)

 

The door was shut, as doors should be,

Before you went to bed last night;

Yet Jack Frost has got in, you see,

And left your window silver white.

 

He must have waited till you slept;

And not a single word he spoke,

But pencilled o’er the panes and crept

Away again before you woke.

 

And now you cannot see the hills

Nor fields that stretch beyond the lane;

But there are fairer things than these

His fingers traced on every pane.

 

Rocks and castles towering high;

Hills and dales, and streams and fields;

And knights in armor riding by,

With nodding plumes and shining shields.

 

And here are little boats, and there

Big ships with sails spread to the breeze;

And yonder, palm trees waving fair

On islands set in silver seas,

 

And butterflies with gauzy wings;

And herds of cows and flocks of sheep;

And fruit and flowers and all the things

You see when you are sound asleep.

 

For, creeping softly underneath

The door when all the lights are out,

Jack Frost takes every breath you breathe,

And knows the things you think about.

 

He paints them on the window-pane

In fairy lines with frozen steam;

And when you wake you see again

The lovely things you saw in dream.

White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Silver Bells

Video / song: Jim Reeves http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stEjTFMb940

 

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks

Dressed in holiday style

In the air

There’s a feeling

of Christmas

 

Children laughing

People passing

Meeting smile after smile

And on every street corner

you’ll hear

 

Silver bells, silver bells

It’s Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring

Soon it will be Christmas day

 

Strings of street lights

Even stop lights

Blink a bright red and green

As the shoppers rush

Home with their treasures

 

Hear the snow crunch

See the kids bunch

This is Santa’s big scene

And above all this bustle

you’ll hear

 

Silver bells, silver bells

It’s Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring

Soon it will be Christmas day

Silent Night 

Silent night! Holy night!

All is calm, all is bright

round yon virgin mother and child,

Holy infant so tender and mild,

sleep in Heavenly peace!

sleep in Heavenly peace!

 

Silent night! Holy night!

Shepherds quake at the sight;

glories stream from Heaven afar,

Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,

Christ, the Saviour, is born!

Christ, the Saviour, is born!

 

Silent night! Holy night!

Son of God, Love’s pure light

radiant beams from Thy Holy face,

with the dawn of redeeming grace,

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth,

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.

You better not cry

Better not pout

Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He’s making a list

And checking it twice;

Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice

He knows when you’re awake

He knows if you’ve been bad or good

So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!

You better not cry

Better not pout

I’m telling you why

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!

O! You better watch out!

You better not cry

Better not pout

I’m telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus is coming to town!
