Kids corner: Songs for spring


Parts of Plants

(To the tune of Muffin Man)

Do you know the parts of plants, parts of plants, parts of plants?
Do you know the parts of plants?
That help them grow and grow.

The roots they hold the plant in place, plant in place, plant in place.
The roots they hold the plant in place

And soak up water too.

The stem moves water up the plant, up the plant, up the plant?
The stem moves water up the plant.
Brings water to the leaves.

The leaves they soak up the sunlight, the sunlight, the sunlight.
The leaves they soak up the sunlight.

And help the plant make food.

The flower grows into a fruit, into a fruit, into a fruit
The flower grows into a fruit.
Inside it are the seeds.

Fuzzy Caterpillar

(Tune of Itsy Bitsy Spider)

The fuzzy caterpillar

Curled up on a leaf.

Spun her little chrysalis

And then fell fast asleep.

While she was sleeping

She dreamed that she could fly.

And later when she woke up

She was a butterfly.

Umbrella Song

Down come the rain drops SPLASH, SPLASH, SPLASH! (stamp feet on the splashes)

Let’s run for cover, DASH, DASH, DASH!  (run on the spot)

Pitter patter, pitter patter, DRIP, DRIP, DROP! (clap hands in rhythm)

I’m under my umbrella till the raindrops STOP! (put up pretend umbrella)
