circle time songs

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

Spring is Coming

Spring is coming! Spring is coming
Birdies build your nests
Weave together straw and feather
Doing each your best

Spring is coming
Spring is coming
Flowers are coming too
Daisies, lilies, daffodillies
Now are coming through


Johnny Appleseed Grace

Oh, the earth is good to me
And so I thank the earth
For giving me the things I need --
The sun, and the rain, and the appleseed.
The earth is good to me.


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


WHite Coral Bells

White coral bells upon a slender stalk -
Lilies of the valley deck my garden walk.
Oh, don't you wish that you could hear them ring?
That will happen only when the fairies sing.

The Way the Flowers Sleep

This is the way the flowers sleep
Throughout the winter long
And this is the way the flowers grow
When they hear the robin's song


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


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.


Two Little Blackbirds

Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill:
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away, Jack! Fly away, Jill!
Come back, Jack, and come back, Jill.
