circle time songs

We're excited to introduce several new songs to our forest school families this summer. Here are the words to the finger plays and songs we'll sing this season. Enjoy!

Summer is a coming in

Summer is a coming in,
Loudly sing cuckoo!
Grow the seed and bloom the meadow
Spring the wood anew.
Sing cuckoo! Sing cuckoo!


Hear the lively song

Hear the lively song
Of the frogs in yonder pond
Crick, crick
Crick-crick-crick-crick
Brrrrrrr-rum!


Blow, Wind, Blow

Blow wind blow
And go mill go
That the miller may grind his corn
That the baker may take it
And into bread bake it
And bring us a loaf in the morn'
Bring us a loaf in the morn'


Little Jenny Wren

As Little Jenny Wren
Was sitting by the shed
She fluttered with her wings
And nodded with her head
She fluttered with her wings
And nodded with her head
As Little Jenny Wren
Was sitting by the shed


Come, Follow Me

Come, follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow me
Wither shall I follow, follow, follow
Wither shall I follow, follow thee
To the greenwood, to the greenwood
To the greenwood, greenwood tree


A Little Fish

A little fish went out to play,
She wiggled her fins and swam away.
She swam and swam through the water bright
Then opened her mouth to take a bite. 

Garden Snail

Slowly, slowly, very slowly crawls the garden snail
Slowly, slowly, very slowly on his garden trail
Quickly, quickly, very quickly runs the garden mouse
Quickly, quickly, very quickly into his little house


Three Little Mice

There little mice came out to play
Gathering crumbs along the way
Out came pussy cat, sleek and fat
Meow!
Two little mice came scampering back...


Trot old Joe

Trot old Joe, Trot old Joe
You ride better than any horse I know.
Trot old Joe, Trot old Joe
You're the best horse in the country, oh.
Whoa, Joe!


This is the Way the Lady Rides

This is the way the lady rides
Ga-lump, ga-lump, ga-lump, ga-lump.
This is the way the gentleman rides
Ga-lump-a-trot, ga-lump-a-trot.
This is the way the farmer rides
Hobble-dee-ha, hobble-dee-ha.
This is the way the hunter rides
Gallopy, gallopy, gallopy
Over the fence!


BUTTERCUP, BUTTERCUP

Buttercup, buttercup waking up
Catch a sunbeam in your cup
Hold it tight, Let it go
Ree-ra ree-ra ro


WRIGGLY WORM

Under a stone where the earth was firm
I found a wriggly wriggly worm
Good morning I said, how are you today?
But the wriggly worm, just wriggled away
