Lollipops and bubble gum,
Candy canes and sugar plums,
Lemon, grape, or sour cherry
Watermelon or pink strawberry,
Chocolate, orange, cinnamon—
I will eat them one by one!
On a stick or in a dish
Sugar sweet is what I wish!
Thumbs in the thumb place,
This is the song we sing in mitten weather.
When it is cold,It does not matter whether,
Mittens are wool or made of finest leather.
Hint! Write the poems on a poster
and use for shared reading. Then run off individual copies for
children to illustrate and save in a poetry folder.
