Songs & Rhymes

Rhyme: 

Up, up in the sky, the little birds fly (fingers flying like birds)
Down, down in the nest, the little birds rest. (hands form nest)
With a wing on the left, and a wing on the right (hands on each hip)
Let the little birds rest all night. (head to one side, like tucking under wing)
“shhhhh!! You might wake up the birdies!“ (yelled, of course)
The bright sun comes up,
the dew falls away,
good morning, good morning
the little birds say.

Song: I See Robins
Tune: “Are You Sleeping”

I see robins,
I see bird’s nests,
Butterflies too,
Flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is here,
Spring is here.
