Rhyming Song- Summer's Here 

Tune: Frere Jacques


Days are longer, sunshine's stronger.

Summer's here! Summer's here!

Let’s jump through the sprinkler,

Let’s make lemonade,

Summer's here! Summer's here!


And Then Comes Summer by Tom Brenner (Candlewick Press)


Rhyming Puzzle- Summer Melon- Adapted from a poem by Tricia Stohr-Hunt

I have a question- what am I?

Full of water

full of sweet

juicy, messy

treat to eat.


Dessert of summer

Picnic jewel

Ruby red and

Oh, so cool!

Did you guess what I am?

A Watermelon!


Dusk Explorers by Lindsay Leslie (Page Street Kids)


Action Rhyme- Fireflies

Fireflies, fireflies

Light up the dark

Kids search all around

For their spark


Catch them in a jar

to help you see

Just a peek

Then set them free.
