This easy Chinese nursery rhythm shows an image of a day in Winter when it snows.  In this article, I am going to introduce the different activities listed in the chant and how we can teach it to kids.

What to Learn About this Nursery Rhythm

It is important for the kids to observe the changes caused by the snow:

The snow falls on the roof and adds a layer to it as if the house becomes higher.

The snow covers the roads, making the road look wider and bigger.

Trees become white as snow falls on and around the branches.

And the kids’ noses become red because they stay outdoor in the cold…

We can first learn the key vocabulary mentioned in the nursery rhythm.
