I love to add seasonal songs into my circle time. Gather the students to sing, play, and learn with this Chinese New Year circle time song and activity. It’s perfect for working on letter recognition.
Plus, you can even turn the game over into a literacy center after you play during circle time.

Over the Mountain Song and Activity
One of the most popular resources on Growing Book by Book is our Circle Time Songs and Chants. Singing is such a great way to build literacy skills.
Here is a Chinese New Year-themed printable song that builds literacy skills.
This song is sung to the tune “The Bear Went Over the Mountain” and builds letter recognition. All you need is the printable, a red envelope, and your singing voice.
Cut the letter coins apart before playing. You may choose to laminate them for durability especially if you are planning on adding them to a literacy center.
Sing the song together and then let the students take turns opening the envelope to reveal the letter inside. Continue singing and playing until all the letters have been identified or each student has had a turn.
–Use the letter coins to practice put the letters in ABC order.
-Have students identify the sound associated with each letter.
