A Little Seed
Written by Mabel Watts
Action Rhyme

A little seed for me to sow . . . (Pretend to hold a tiny seed.)
A little earth to make it grow . . . (Stoop down and touch the ground.)
A little hole, A little pat . . . (Pretend to dig a hole; plant seed; pat earth around seed.)
A little wish, And that is that. (Touch index fingers to head; bring arms down and fold over chest.)
A little sun, A little shower . . . (Make sun with hands; use fingers to create rain.)
A little while, And then --- a flower! (Pretend to sleep; cup hands around face like flower.)

April Showers
To the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"

Dark clouds gather outside,
The wind begins blow,
A raindrop falls and then another --
April showers!

I am not afraid.
The rain is very good.
It softens the earth and helps the plants
Make May flowers.

Farmer, Farmer
(Action Rhyme)

Farmer, farmer, dig and plant, (Pretend to dig and plant.)
Farmer, farmer, dig and plant,
Farmer, farmer, dig and plant,
Dig and plant the soil.

Mr. Sun, shine so bright, (Make circle with hands above head; shine down on ground.)
Mr. Sun, shine so bright,
Mr. Sun, shine so bright,
Shine and warm the soil.

Mrs. Raindrop, fall, fall, fall, (Raise hands up high; bring fingers down like raindrops.)
Mrs. Raindrop, fall, fall, fall,
Mrs. Raindrop, fall, fall, fall,
Fall and water the earth.

Tiny seed, grow, grow, grow, (Crouch down in a little ball; grow slightly on each "grow.")
Tiny seed, grow, grow, grow,
Tiny seed, grow, grow, grow,
Grow up big and tall. (Raise hands high and spread out arms, like towering plant.)

Lovely plant, bud and bloom, (Cup hands around face and slowly open them up, like a flower blooming.)
Lovely plant, bud and bloom,
Lovely plant, bud and bloom,
Bud and bloom for me.

The Farmer Plants the Seeds
To the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"

The farmer plants the seeds,
The farmer plants the seeds,
The farmer plants the seeds,
Hi, ho, the derry-oh,
The farmer plants the seeds.

The rain falls gently down,
The rain falls gently down,
The rain falls gently down,
Hi, ho, the derry-oh,
The rain falls gently down.

The sun shines so warm,
The sun shines so warm,
The sun shines so warm,
Hi, ho, the derry-oh,
The sun shines so warm.

The seeds begin to grow,
The seeds begin to grow,
The seeds begin to grow,
Hi, ho, the derry-oh,
The seeds begin to grow.

The plants blow in the breeze,
The plants blow in the breeze,
The plants blow in the breeze,
Hi, ho, the derry-oh,
The plants blow in the breeze.

I'm a Little Flower Bulb
To the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little flower bulb, small and brown,
Buried in the cool, dark ground.
As the days grow warmer, watch and see,
I'll sprout through the earth -- Yippee!

Growing, growing, growing every day,
Sprouting leaves that gently sway,
Next comes a bud and then a flower --
A face to shine 'neath sun and showers.

Soon it will be summer.

It won't be long.

Nine Little Flowers
To the tune of "Ten Little Indians"

One little, two little, three little flowers,
Four little, five little, six little flowers,
Seven little, eight little, nine little flowers,
Peeping through the ground.

Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
So they'll grow up tall.

As they grow, they'll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they'll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they'll bud and bloom,
In the lovely springtime.

Oh, when the trees all sprout new leaves,
Oh, when the trees all sprout new leaves,
We know it must be springtime
When the trees all sprout new leaves.

Oh, when brown earth gives way to green,
Oh, when brown earth gives way to green,
We know it must be springtime
When brown earth gives way to green.

Oh, when the flowers begin to bloom,
Oh, when the flowers begin to bloom,
We know it must be springtime
When the flowers begin to bloom.

Out In The Garden
To the tune of "Down By the Station"

Out in the garden, early in the springtime,
See the farmer planting seeds in a row.
Soon with some help from the sun and rain
Lots of lovely plants will grow, grow, grow.

Plant A Garden
To the tune of "Oh My Darling Clementine"

Plant a garden, plant a garden,
Plant a garden in the spring.
Dig a hole and add some seeds.
Cover them up gently now, please.

They need lots and lots of sunshine,
A little wind, a little rain.
Soon those little seeds will sprout --
You'll see green leaves, have no doubt.

Day by day, they'll grow taller,
And their roots will deeper go.
Big strong plants will bud and bloom,
Yielding veggies to consume.

And green leaves pierce the ground.
