5 Spring Flowers

Yesterday I posted a song about 5 litte seeds. It only seems fitting that I post about 5 spring flowers today. :)

I found some of the lyrics for this song in the form of poems (or finger plays, as they call them),on some of the early childhood resource websites. I changed a few of the words and then put it to music.

I have had fun with this song in particular. Besides the counting aspect of the song, the students have had fun making a "thunderstorm" with our various rhythm instruments. We have used drums for thunder "booms", and bells and clatterpillars for a quick "zap". We also use a rainstick to make real rain sounds during the thunderstorm. The possibilities are endless!

So, here it is, 5 Spring flowers:

As always, thanks for stopping by!
