Six Little Snowflakes 
(Looking for Christmas)

One of our most popular songs for bi-lingual children is featured in this magical musical for the younger grades, “Mi Casa Su Casa.”

Also popular in this mini-musical are the songs “The Day Before, the Day Before Christmas,” and “Christmas is Music.”

 

Christmas is saved for the homeless shelter by “left behind” snowflakes, a scraggly tree, two kettles of soup left out on a stoop, and a real Virginia ham! All by way of illustrating that it is better to give than to receive.

 

Teacher Book is $15.00. Student book 5/Pack is $12.50. Perf/Acc CD is $19.95. For Grades K-5, 20 minutes in duration.

CD tracks:

1.  Six Little Snowflakes / Dialogue

Santa and the Three Scrooges

The three stingy relatives of Ebenezer Scrooge (the three scrooges of the title!) buy the North Pole and proceed to “fire” Santa Claus because he is simply too generous, giving away all those toys for free, AND he’s too old for his job! Just when it seems that Santa Claus is defeated, he braves impossible odds (including chicken pox) to bring Christmas to the children and is ultimately inspired to believe—in himself.
