The 12 Days Before Winter Break (A Holiday Sing-Along)

The winter break is right around the corner. And that means your classroom is probably buzzing with excitement!

As the big day gets closer, your little learners are likely to grow more anxious and restless with each passing day. No matter how your little learners are dealing with waiting for the upcoming holiday, we know the few days leading up to winter break are always an interesting time for any early childhood teacher.

So to commemorate this “big day”, we’ve written some special lyrics to a familiar tune. Feel free to sing along (and see how many of these you can relate to!). Want a little extra chuckle? Watch it at 1.5x the speed.

Enjoy! And Happy Holidays from all of us at Abrams Learning Trends.

Lyrics

On the day before winter break, my students gave to me

A raucous classroom party

 

2 days before winter break, my students gave to me

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

3 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

4 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

5 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

6 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

 7 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Seven random stories

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

8 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Eight "can we go yet's"

Seven random stories

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

9 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Nine class distractions

Eight "can we go yet's"

Seven random stories

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

10 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Ten crumpled tissues

Nine class distractions

Eight "can we go yet's"

Seven random stories

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

11 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Eleven broken pencils

Ten crumpled tissues

Nine class distractions

Eight "can we go yet's"

Seven random stories

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party

 

12 days before Christmas break, my students gave to me

Twelve hand-drawn pictures

Eleven broken pencils

Ten crumpled tissues

Nine class distractions

Eight "can we go yet's"

Seven random stories

Six lost assignments

FIVE “I DON’T KNOW’S”

Four bathroom breaks

Three mystery stains

Two "where'd he go's?!?"

And a raucous classroom party
