Storytime: Spring

Opening Rhyme: Open them, Shut them

Book: Spring by Cynthia Amoroso

Rhyme: Five Little Flowers
Five little flowers standing in the sun
See their heads nodding, bowing one by one?
Down, down, down comes the gentle rain
And the five little flowers lift their heads up again!

Book: When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes

Song: "If You’re Happy and You Know It"

Book: And Then It’s Spring by Julie Fogliano

Scarf Play: Give each child a scarf. Have them bunch it up in their cupped hands like their hands are an egg. Have the egg hatch and pull out the scarf, pretending it's a bird that can fly high, fly low, fly in circles, etc. Have kids raise their scarves by color.
