Kindergarten Music: Ride a Cock Horse l Barefoot Books-LadyD

I came across a song for the classroom while introducing concepts. What's a cock horse, you might ask? The Free Dictionary says it's an old English word; something used as a toy horse, such as the knee of an adult or a rocking horse.

Listen to the song on YouTube, here.


Mittens and Boots


Sung to: Ride a Cock Horse

C
These are our mittens,
F                     C
What are they for?
         F                       D
They keep our hands warm
                 G               C
When we go out the door.
                              F
And these are our boots,
                  C                   G
They will keep our feet dry
F                 G
In piles of cold snow
            C           F  C
When we play outside.

Learning manners can be fun,

Please and thank you,

"Yes ma'am," "no sir" are some,
