Welcome Readers :)

Welcome readers !
Thank you for visiting 'Inside the child' and hope that your time spend reading my blog is educational. It includes my thoughts and approach to a child, based on the Montessori educational philosophy that emphasize on independence, freedom within limits and learning concepts of working with materials hands-on, rather than by direct instructions.

My favorite quote by Dr. Maria Montessori “There is in every child a painstaking teacher, so skillful that he obtains identical results in all children in all parts of the world. The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!”
As a Children's House Montessori teacher, it is my pleasure to share my experience with children of ages 2 1/2 - 7 yrs old, and how small little things makes a big difference. Enjoy reading. Thank you.

December Songs

December is a holiday season everywhere. It's a feel good month :) Lots of children look forward to it for having fun in decorative malls with the Santa, singing Christmas carols, other winter songs and making the snowman.

In schools too, children have their recitals or sing and song shows where they sing along with other students and make their parents, family and teachers proud.

Just that I don't run out of my memory in future, I am listing the collection of Christmas and winter songs/lyrics below, for you and myself.

Jingle bells -



Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh


Let it snow ! Let it snow ! by Dean Martin -

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss good night
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!


Santa Claus is Coming -

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town 




Frosty the Snowman -

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
Know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around.
O, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

Frosty the snowman knew
The sun was hot that day,
So he said, "Let's run and
We'll have some fun
Now before I melt away."
Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all
Around the square saying,
Catch me if you can.
He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler "Stop!"
For Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
"Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day."
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.



Deck the Hall -

 Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. 
 Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la, la la la, la la la.  
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the blazing Yule before us, Fa la la la la, la la la la.  
Strike the harp and join the chorus. Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la, la la la la. 
While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la la la, la la la la. 
 Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Sing we joyous, all together, Fa la la la la, la la la la.  
Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la, la la la la



Rocking around the Christmas tree -

Rockin' around the Christmas tree At the Christmas party hop,  
Mistletoe hung where you can see, Every couple tries to stop, 
 Rockin' around the Christmas tree, Let the Christmas spirit ring,  
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie, And we'll do some caroling.
You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear,
Voices singing, "Let's be jolly, Deck the halls with boughs of holly", 
 Rockin' around the Christmas tree, 
 Have a happy holiday, Everyone dancin' merrily, In the new old-fashioned way.
You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear, Voices singing, "Let's be jolly, Deck the halls with boughs of holly", Rockin' around the Christmas tree, Have a happy holiday, Everyone dancin' merrily, In the new old-fashioned way.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year-

It's the most wonderful time of the year
 With the kids jingle-belling
And everyone telling you
Be of good cheer
It's the most wonderful time of the year
(Wonderful time)

It's the hap-happiest season of all,
With those holiday greetings
And great happy meetings
When friends come to call
It's the hap-happiest season of all

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for roasting
And caroling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There be much mistletoe-ing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year, ooh ah

Woah, there'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for roasting
And caroling out in the snow (out in the snow)
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year (most
wonderful time)
There be much mistletoe-ing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near (loved ones are near)
It's the most wonderful time (wonderful time)
It's the most wonderful time (wonderful time)
It's the most wonderful time of the year
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer -


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,  
You would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names;  
They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,  
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee, 
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
You'll go down in history.

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,  
Comet and Cupid and Donder and Blitzen., 
 But do you recall?  
The most famous reindeer of all?  
 

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,  
You would even say it glows. 
All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names; 
They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, 
 Santa came to say, 
 Rudolph with your nose so bright,  
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?
Then how the reindeer loved him  
As they shouted out with glee, 
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,  
You'll go down in history.
