With a yellow petticoat
And a green gown.

Activities for Home
• Walk around your neighborhood on a flower search. What colors can you find? Take time to smell the flowers too. Which flowers have no smell? Can you find dandelions? Do any bushes have flowers?
• Visit a garden shop or florist to explore different kinds of flowers. Consider planting a few flowers in a garden or buying a potted plant with flowers. Take turns with your child watering the plant according to the directions.
• Watch a nature show on television or read a book about animals. Use the words feathers, fur, scales, or shells to talk about the animals’ features. Why don’t fish have fur? You may enjoy drawing silly animals together—a bird with a shell or a snake with feathers!
• Talk about animal homes. If you don’t know the answers to your child’s questions, don’t worry! Search the Internet or visit the library to look for answers together. Finding answers can be just as important as knowing the answers.

One Little Seed
Sung to “London Bridge”
One little seed is in the ground,
In the ground, in the ground.
One little seed is in the ground,
Fast asleep.
Warm sunshine and big raindrops,
Big raindrops, big raindrops.
Warm sunshine and big raindrops,
All falling down.
One little seed peeks through the ground,
Through the ground, through the ground.
One little seed peeks through the ground,
Wide awake!

Animals Everywhere
Sung to “This Old Man”
Over here, over here,
I see animals everywhere!
Who is hiding behind the tree?
I can’t guess, let’s listen and see!
“Chomp, chomp,” goes the alligator.
“Roar, roar,” bellows the big black bear.
“Screech, screech,” calls the bald eagle.
“Pee-ew!” I smell a skunk in the air!
