With our friends at school and play,
We share and share alike each day
I'll share a toy, you'll share a snack
You'll share with me and I'll share right back
But there is one thing that you should not share...
(Now, what was that?)

Keep your sneeze to yourself
Don't share your germs with anyone else!
Get a tissue off the shelf
And keep your sneeze to yourself!
(Achoo! More tissues!)

With our friends at school and play
We share and share alike each day
I'll share a ball, you'll share a game
You'll share with me and I'll do the same
But there is one thing that you should not share...
(Come again?)

Keep your sneeze to yourself
Don't share your germs with anyone else!
Turn your head (Achoo!)
And cover your mouth
And keep your sneeze to yourself!

Every time after a sneeze,
Give your hands a scrub - use a little soap, please!
If you think you're about to sneeze
Get a tissue off the shelf...
Turn back, and then cover your mouth...

And keep your sneeze to yourself! (Gesundheit!)
Keep your sneeze to yourself! (That's better!)
Keep... your... sneeze... to your-SELF!
Achoo!

Hints and Tips: 

  • Use actions while singing this song. 
  • Teach children how to sneeze, without spreading their germs

Five little snowmen standing in a row. 
Each had a hat and a big red bow. 
Out came the sun and it shone all day. 
One little snowman melted away.

Four little snowmen standing in a row. 
Each had a hat and a big red bow. 
Out came the sun and it shone all day. 
One little snowman melted away.

Three little snowmen standing in a row. 
Each had a hat and a big red bow. 
Out came the sun and it shone all day. 
One little snowman melted away.

Two little snowmen standing in a row. 
Each had a hat and a big red bow. 
Out came the sun and it shone all day. 
One little snowman melted away.

Out came the sun and it shone all day. 
And the one little snowman melted away.

Watch as they all melt away!

There are eight planets in our solar system
We all revolve around the sun
Join us to learn about the different planets

There was a little turtle
Who lived in a box.
He swam in the puddles
And climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at the mosquito,
He snapped at the flea.
He snapped at the minnow,
And he snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito,
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow,
But he didn't catch me!
