Spring is Here by Will Hillenbrand (Holiday House)
Action Song-Planting Flowers
(Tune: Fere Jacques)
Planting flowers, planting flowers, (pretend to plant flowers into the ground)
In the ground, in the ground,
Water and they’ll grow, (pretend to water plants with a watering can)
Water and they’ll grow,
All around, all around.
Mouse’s First Spring by Lauren Thompson (Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers)
Action Rhyme- How Does a Caterpillar Go?
How does a caterpillar go?
Dear me, does anybody know?
A wriggle, wriggle all day long. (crawl index finger up opposite arm like a caterpillar)
How does a honeybee go?
A buzzing, buzzing all day long. (flap hands quickly like little bee wings)
How does a butterfly go?
A flutter, flutter all day long. (spread arms and move them up and down)
How does a busy spider go?
A spinning, spinning all day long. (place each thumb on opposite pinky finger and walk hands up and down)
The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes (Flying Eye Books)
Rhyming Song-See the Sunflowers
(Sung to: Down by the Station or Little Bunny Foo Ffoo)
Out in the garden, early in the springtime,
See the little sunflowers standing in a row.
See the happy gardener giving them some water,
Slurp, slurp, slurp, slurp, weed and hoe!
Out in the garden, later in the summer,
See the giant sunflowers standing in a row.
Slurp, slurp, slurp, slurp, watch them grow!
