Spring Songs


Spring is here (tune: Farmer in the Dell)

The days of Spring are here,
Warm, sunny days are near,
Flowers and bees, and birds in trees.
The days of spring are here.


I have a poem you can use during Spring week. I got it out of a book.

Rain on the green grass,
Rain on the tree,
Rain on the house top.
But not on me.

Children love it, they also make up their own actions but you can make up some if you want.


Over In The Meadow…..

Use Raffi’s version of this counting song….and sing it yourself if possible. I made up a flannel to go with this song. It consists of a pond, blue stream, tree, rock, bee hive…sun, and small grassy area. Mommy duck and 1 baby, mommy fish and 2 babies, mommy bird and 3 babies, mommy frog and 4 babies, and mommy bee and 5 babies. Also a human mom holding a baby. Take your time singing it at their pace.


Herman the Worm

Sittin’ on the fence post, chewin’ my bubble gum. (Make chewing sounds) Playin’ with my yo-yo. (Pretend you have a yo-yo) And along came Herman the Worm, and he was this big. (Hold your hands opened in front of you) I said, “Herman, what’s the matter?” “I ate a car.”

Sittin’ on the fence post, chewin’ my bubble gum. Playin’ with my yo-yo. And along came Herman the Worm, and he was this big. (Open hands a little wider) I said, “Herman, what’s the matter?” “I ate a truck.”

Sittin’ on the fence post, chewin’ my bubble gum. Playin’ with my yo-yo. And along came Herman the Worm, and he was this big. (Open hands a little wider) I said, “Herman, what’s the matter?” “I ate a bus.”

Sittin’ on the fence post, chewin’ my bubble gum. Playin’ with my yo-yo. And along came Herman the Worm, and he was this big. (Open hands as wide as you can) I said, “Herman, what’s the matter?” “I ate a train.”

Sittin’ on the fence post, chewin’ my bubble gum. Playin’ with my yo-yo. And along came Herman the Worm, and he was this big. (Hold two fingers in front of your eye, opened a little) I said, “Herman, what’s the matter?” “I Burped!”


I read a story about a chick being hatched from an egg. After the story was over we talked about what ways the chick used in order to get out. I then played a classical piece with slow and then some fast parts as well. The children pretended that they were a chick hatching from an egg, and needed to get out.

One thought on “Spring Songs”


  1. Sung to Pop Goes The Weasel:

    The tiny seeds swirled round and round
    Before they hit the ground
    Then where there were none before
    Three flowers bloomed and then three more!!!
