TODDLER PROGRAM

OPENING SONG: Mister Sun

OPENING RHYMES: 

BOOK 1: What Does Bunny See? By Maggie Smith
Bunny wanders through the garden finding different flowers…in all different colors.  I had the children name the color, and then I named the flower.  At the end, we tried to name as many of the flowers as we could remember!

 FLANNELBOARD: Ten Little Flowers

(Tune: Ten Little Indians)
One little, two little, three little flowers
Four little, five little, six little flowers
Seven little, eight little, nine little flowers
Ten flowers in the spring.

(What do flowers need to grow?  Rain and sunshine!)

Give them rain and lots of sunshine
(wiggle fingers down for rain; arms overhead in a circle for sun)
Give them rain and lots of sunshine
Give them rain and lots of sunshine
So they’ll grow up tall
