Molly’s favourite and Amy Winehouse’s version

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom fast asleep.
Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

Molly’s version of the twelve days of Christmas: carols, villancicos, nadales . Cardinal and ordinal numbers

Today, Molly will say goodbye to us until next year. This is the reason for anticipating Christmas celebration a bit. Se has written, as a  farewell  present, a very nice version of a traditional Christmas carol. Next week, while she’ll be knitting her magenta scarf with Kitty Jo,  her grandmother, we’ll be trying to make our own versions of the twelve days of Christmas too and we’ll publish them in the blog. Molly will  be able to see what we are doing. Listen to Molly explaining and sing along, you will have to look for images to illustrate your carol too. Let’s see what comes out of it.

This is the traditional carol.

As you might have noticed, the song follows a repetitive pattern, and it is not very difficult to make up a similar one. You just need to make  a list of 12 things. Molly made her version with 12 knitting  and needle work items. First she thought of a person, and her grandmother, Kitty Jo, came to her mind. Then, she thought of things her grandmother would give to her. She is very good at knitting, so all kind of equipment entered the song. Finally, she thought of her sewing experience at Modanostra, and that was the end of the list.

Look at the images and try to identify what they are.

Now read Molly’s version

On the first day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: a sewing machine.

On the second day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: two pairs of scissors, and a sewing machine.

On the third day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: three tape measures, two pairs of scissors, and a sewing machine.

On the fourth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: four cable makers….

On the fifth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: five row counters….

On the sixth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: six safety pins….

On the seventh day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: seven pairs of needles….

One the eighth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: eight thread bobbins….

On the ninth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: nine balls of yarn….

On the tenth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: ten different fabrics….

One the eleventh day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: eleven stitch markers….

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my Grandma gave to me: twelve clothes patterns………………and a sewing machine!

In Science lessons, we have been using numbers a lot, here follow two pages where you can go if you are not sure how to write or use  numbers.

Finally,  to help your inspiration, you can have a look at another version of the carol, this time instead of  sewing machines or  partridges on a pear trees, you can enjoy Shreck’s version  full of fire breathing dragons, exploding birds, mirrors cracking, onion rings and …
