Spring Is Here!

Here are a few simple rhymes to celebrate the start of spring:

In the Springtime
In the Springtime, the sun does shine,
The birds fly to and fro.
The frogs say "Ribbit" in the pond,
And the flowers bloom and grow.

(Note: This is a great one to act out. Make a half circle with your arms overhead for the sun, then flap your arms for the birds, use your hands to "make" the frogs' sound, then put your hands together, palms facing each other, in front of you and move them up in the air together and then apart to show flowers blooming and growing.)

Robin's Nest
Here is a nest for a robin (cup your hands)
Here is a hive for a bee (make a fist with one hand, then cover with the other),
Here is a hole for a bunny (make a circle with one thumb and index finger)
And here is a house for me! (put your fingertips together to make a roof).
