Songs and Rhymes:

My Garden

Here is my garden (Hand out and open, palm up)

I’ll rake it with care (rake with other hand)

And then some seeds we’ll plant in there (drop seeds)

The sun will shine (arms make sun)

And then my garden will grow big and tall . (stretch arms way up and out)

Out in My Garden       (tune: Down by the Station)

Out in my garden

Early in the morning

See the little vegetables all in a row

See the rows of carrots

And the rows of peas

Water, hoe, grow, grow, grow.

 Five Little Bees

One little bee blew and flew.

He met a friend, and that made two.

Two little bees, busy as could be-

Along came another and that made three.

Three little bees, wanted more and more

They found one soon, and that made four.

Four little bees, going to the hive.

They spied their little brother, and that made five.

Five little bees working every hour-

Buzz away bees, and find another flower.

Try This at Home: 

Make a beautiful summer flower garden that you can hang up anywhere.  All you need is paper, fingerpaint, and your little one’s handprint.  Get creative and have fun!
