Ten Little Santas Lyrics

1 little, 2 little, 3 little Santas
4 little, 5 little, 6 little Santas
7 little, 8 little, 9 little Santas
10 little Santas dancing

10 little, 9 little, 8 little Santas
7 little, 6 little, 5 little Santas
4 little, 3 little, 2 little Santas
1 little Santa dancing

Do the Santa, Ho-ho-ho
Do the reindeer, jump, jump, jump
Do the snowman, spin, spin, spin and stop
1, 2, 3, Merry Christmas!

I start teaching this song by teaching the vocabulary of Santa, snowman, and reindeer using the free printable flashcards (see above). Next, we count from 1 to 10, then back from 10 to 1. Then, I teach the actions of the characters (Santa- ho, ho, ho reindeer-jump, snowman-spin). At this point you can either show the video, or simply sing the free download song with the flashcards.

Games: After singing the song, try tossing a ball in a circle, as each student catches the ball they have to count 1, 2, 3, etc. Then, when you reach 10, count backwards.
Next you can play a simple sit down game. Pick a number to start with, say 6 or 7, and students have to toss the ball to the next student counting down from 6 to 1. One number for each student. The student who catches the ball on "1" has to sit down. Repeat until there is only one student standing, who is the winner.
