Create Your Own Story Time: March 23rd Spring Story Time

Couldn't come to story time today? No need to worry. You can create the experience at home using the story time we did today.

Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms by Julia Rawlinson
When Will It Be Spring by Catherine Walters

The Little Caterpillar
(Tune: "The Itsy Bitsy Spider")

The little Caterpillar crawled up into a tree,
Spun his cocoon and slept so quietly,
All through the winter he didn't make a sound,
He dreamt of his new life when he'd be flying all around.

While he was sleeping the snow did gently fall,
Winter came and went, then he heard the robin's call,
Come on Mr. Butterfly, out of your cocoon,
Spread your wings and fly for me, while I sing my tune.

Spring Is Here
(Tune: "Are You Sleeping")

I see robins,
I see bird's nest,
Butterflies too,
flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is her, spring is here.

Beautiful Rainbow Came

One day the sun was shining bright (Hold up right hand like blocking sunlight)
but some clouds came along and it became black as night (Hold up left hand for the cloud)
Then the rain began to sprinkle on the ground (Wiggle fingers for the rain coming down)
And soon it was raining all over town
(But when the clouds had passed on by (Move both hands to one side)
A big beautiful rainbow stretched across the sky (Make a rainbow arc with your hands)

Fun in the Rain
(Tune: "Deck the Halls")

Do you hear the pitter patter? Hear the little raindrops falling down.
Can you see the splashing water? All the little raindrops on the ground.
Time to get our big umbrellas, we don't want to get our hair all wet.
If you wear your boots and raincoat, We will go outside and splash a bit!

Now It's Spring (Tune: "Up on the Housetop")

Winter is gone and now it's spring
flowers bloom and robins sing
sunshine is warm it's nice and bright
the butterflies are such a pretty sight
spring, spring, spring now it's here
spring, spring, spring lots of cheer
winter is gone and now it's spring
Let's shout hooray I'm glad it's spring
