A May Basket
(Sung to: A-Tisket, A-Tasket)
Submitted by Holly
A-tisket, a-tasket,
I made a May basket.
I filled it up with flowers bright
And hung it on the door just right
Oh, I made a May basket.

Spring Poem
By Sharon Siegelman
Some days seem like winter,
Some are nice and warm.
Rainy days and windy days,
Maybe it will storm.
Warm or cold or wet or dry,
What will the weather be?
I think Spring is trying to play
Peek-a-boo with me
April Showers Bring May Flowers So try these Flowers Ideas:
The Flower Song
Submitted by Jennifer
The flower has some petals, the flower has some petals.
The petals call the birds and bees, the flower has some petals
The flower has some leaves, the flower has some leaves.
The leaves will catch the rain and sun, the flower has some leaves.
The flower has a stem, the flower has a stem.
The stem will make it stand up tall, the flower has a stem.
The flower has some roots, the flower has some roots.
The roots will carry food and drink, the flower has some roots.
Planting Flowers
Submitted by Tina
Planting flowers, planting flowers
In the ground, in the ground,
Water them and they grow,
Water them and they grow,
All around, all around.
Plant A Little Seed
Submitted by Julie
I plant a little seed in the cold, cold ground (Squat down pretend to plant)
Out comes the yellow sun, big and round (Put arms above head like sun)
Down come the raindrops soft and slowly (dancing fingers)
Up comes the flower grow, grow, grow (jump as flower emerges)
Butterflies are Great For May Day Fun:
The Caterpillar
Submitted by Tina
The fuzzy little caterpillar went up into a tree (act like your climbing)
spun his cocoon and then (yawn) went to sleep (spin hands)
While he was sleeping he dreamt that he could fly (making flying motion)
When he woke up (loud, excited) he was a butterfly.
(Sung To "Row, row your boat")
Submitted by Jenny
One caterpillar , two caterpillars, three caterpillars today.
Four caterpillars, five caterpillars eating all the day.
One cocoon, two cocoons three cocoons today.
Four cocoons, five cocoons sleeping all the day.
One butterfly, two butterflies three butterflies today.
