Rhymes and Fingerplays:
First you take the seed and you plant it in the ground (pretend to plant seeds in hand)
Next a rain cloud comes and waters all around (Use one hand to simulate rain)
Next the sun shines brightly, wouthout a sound (use fingers like sun)
And in just a few days, a flower is found (open hand like flower)
One little daffodil had nothing much to do,
Out popped another one, then there were two.
Two little daffodils were smiling at a bee,
Out popped another one, then there were three,
Three little daffodils were growing by the door,
Out popped another one, then there were four,
Four little daffodils were glad to be alive,
Out popped another one, then there were five,
Five little daffodils were wearing golden crowns,
They danced in the breeze in green satin gowns.
Art: Children were given various supplies to create their own spring scenes! They made beautiful gardens and flowers out of paper, pipe cleaners, tissue paper, markers and foam bugs.
