Happy Spring! We celebrated at Circle Time today by learning a new rhyme:
In the spring, the sun does shine
The birds fly to and fro
The frogs say Ribbit in the pond,
And the flowers bloom and grow.
Act out the rhyme by placing your arms together over your head as a sun, then flapping your arms as birds, saying Ribbit with gusto, and then creating a blooming flower by placing your hands together in front of you (palms touching each other) and then moving them upwards and out.
Continue the celebration by reading some of these new picture books, including a wonderful new one titled And Then It's Spring:
