I grew up in a Yiddish speaking comunity and taught for 3 years in a Yiddish speaking preschool. Now I teach in an English speaking nursery and I do not know any English songs! Can you post any cute songs your kids come home with? Anything for yom kippur and sukkos?

and decorations up onto the wall
we will shake shake shake the lulav
along with the esrog too
and the 1, 2, 3 hadasin
and 2 aravos

On Yom Kippur we don't eat or drink
We don't wear leather on our feet
We don't smear lotion or wash that's the rule
All we do is daven in shul

Please Hashem be Mochel me
I'll be good Oh yes you will see
Please Hashem send a Shana Tova
For me and my whole mishpacha

(to tune of V'Haviosim)


And then the Mitzva Tree One

Before Yom Kippur the holiest day
The people in shul were surprised in this way
A simple boy entered, no one knew why
He could not read a siddur but this was his cry

Hashem Hashem please help me now
I want to daven but I don't know how
Aleph Bais Gimmel Daled Hei
If only I knew the words I should say
Vav Zayin Ches Tes and Yud
I want to thank Hashem as I should

His plea he said again and again
His Tefilla went up straight to Hashem
We see, said the Rav, what Kavanah can do
Let's learn from this boy to daven well too
We see said the people what Kavanah can do
We'll learn from this boy to daven well too

TT: I have a little hunk of tin-
Bawk bawk bawk bawk goes the chicken,
Hold him tight, he may start kickin'.
Take him, twirl him round your head,
And all your Aveiros go to him instead.


TT: Ki Va Moed (and also Rhyming is fun, from Uncle Moishy)-
Lulav and Esrog,
Haddasim and Aravos,
These are 4 things we use on Succos.
Lulav and Esrog,
Hadassim and Aravos,
These are 4 things we use on Succos,

Shake, shake, shake,
Shake them all around,
To the right and to the left,
Shake them up and down.

I saw this on ywn. I think its what you're looking for.

A sukkaleh, quite small,
Wooden planks for each wall;
Lovingly I stood them upright.
I laid thatch as a ceiling
And now, filled with deep feeling,
I sit in my sukkaleh at night.

A chill wind attacks,
Blowing through the cracks;
The candles, they flicker and yearn.
It's so strange a thing
That as the Kiddush I sing,
The flames, calmed, now quietly burn.

In comes my daughter,
Bearing hot food and water;
Worry on her face like a pall.
She just stands there shaking
And, her voice nearly breaking,
Says "Tattenyu, the sukkah's going to fall!"

Dear daughter, don't fret;
It hasn't fallen yet.
The sukkah will be fine, understand.
There have been many such fears,
For nigh two thousand years;
Yet the sukkahleh continues to stand.

I also heard it in a simpler version but I don't remember the words besides for the 1st 2 lines and 2 lines in middle.

My sukkah was small
Not fancy at all...
...
My sweet little daughter
brought me some water...

There's also an 'I've been workin' on the sukkah' song TTTO I've been workin on the railroad. But dont remember those words either. Maybe it's from Uncle Moishy?

Yes that's the one!

Oh father she cried

The wind has been worse my dear
it's almost two thousand years....

Found it! In a comment on Aish.com!

My succa'leh was small
not fancy at all
but it was so special to me
some schach I threw over it
hoping to cover it
and there I'd sit and think

The wind was a cold one
the boards they were old ones
the candles were flickering low
at times as if dying
but suddenly rising
as if they did not want to go

My sweet little daughter
was bringing me water
saw the wind and started to call
Father, she cried
don't stay there inside
the wind's too strong, the succa'leh will fall

Fear not my child
it's been quite a while
the succa'leh is still standing strong
the winds have been worse, my dear
but it's over two thousand years
the succa'leh can last very long.

That's so cute! But a bit to mature for nursery, no? The Yiddish one was much simpler. I didn't know it's so long. Though I only know the first paragraph...

You can always use your Yidish songs and change them to English when I taught in a Yidish speaking school I changed my English songs to Yidish
For yom Kipur I have:
No cookies no candies no goodies to eat
All dressed in white with sneakers on our feet
I wonder I wonder what all this is for
I know I know it's for Yom Kipur
