Song The winter now is over
The winter now is over. April rains are past.
I know I heard this morning the cuckoo's song at last.
Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Oh, can't you hear it too ?
I know I heard this morning the cuckoo's song at last.

Little Brown Mouse's Secret
Little Brown Mouse poked his head out of his hole and sniffed.
There was something special about this bright, sunny morning.
And he knew what it was.
Little Brown Mouse ran to tell the apple tree, but the apple tree already knew.
Apple, apple tree. Straight and tall.
Apple, apple tree. Big and small.
Apple, apple tree. Apple, apple tree. You love us all.
Apple tree, apple tree. Do you know? Do you know?
Yes, I know. Yes, I know.
So Little Brown Mouse ran to tell the butterfly.
Butterfly, flutter by in the garden
How happy am I that you're passing by!
How happy am I that you're passing by!
Butterfly, butterfly. Do you know? Do you know?
Yes, I know. Yes, I know.
So Little Brown Mouse went to see his friend the bird.
I'm a bird. I sing my song. And fly, fly, fly all day long.
And at night, I go to rest, And sleep, sleep, sleep in my little nest.
Bird, bird. Do you know? Do you know?
Yes, I know. Yes, I know.
Suddenly, Little Brown Mouse knew just who to tell.
He raced back home, shouting:
'Wake up, Brother Mouse and Sister Mouse. It's Spring'


When March Wind blows, 'Who-oo-oo-oo,' In a soft and gentle way,
He's saying, 'Take your snowsuit off, I'm blowing warm today.'
…
Wake up, said the sun to the snowdrops. Wake up, little flowers so white.
Winter has gone. Spring has come. Wake up for all is bright.

Song:
Good morning, good morning, Good morning to you.
Good morning’s what we say, Good morning’s what we do
Good morning, good morning, Good morning to you.

Verse The sun with loving light Morning verse.
The sun with loving light makes bright for me each day.
The soul with spirit power gives strength into my limbs.
In sunlight shining clear, I reverence, O God
The strength of human kind that you so graciously Have planted in my mind.
May I with all my might love to work and learn.
Good morning to you and good morning to me.

Dig a little hole
Dig a little hole. Plant a little seed. Pour a little water. Pull a little weed.
Chase a little bug- Heigh-ho, there he goes! Give a little sunshine, Grow a little rose.

Song
In the springtime garden, rosy morning glow
Sunshine calling, falling, calling, Seedlings wake and grow.

Story I dig, dig, dig
I dig, dig, dig, and I plant some seeds. I rake, rake, rake, and I pull some weeds.
I wait and watch, and soon I know My garden sprouts and starts to grow.

Poem In the heart of a seed
In the heart of a seed, buried deep so deep, A dear little plant lay fast asleep,
Wake said the sun and creep to the light. Wake said the voice of the raindrops bright.
The dear little plant heard and arose To see what the wonderful outside world might be.

English Curriculum Grade 1 Season 3 Spring Nature

Song:
Which is the way to fairy land, To fairy land, to fairy land?
Which is the way to fairy land, To dance by the light of the moon?

Good morning
Good morning when it's morning. Good night when it is night.
Good evening when it's dark out. Good day when it is light.
Good morning to the sunshine. Good morning, little morning white flower.

Story:
Caterpillar, crawling so slow Caterpillar let me help you go
Carrying my caterpillar showing all my friends.
Caterpillar crawled somewhere I don’t know where he goes.
Caterpillar crawling down my nose Caterpillar crawling up the trees
Caterpillar eating all the leaves Caterpillar getting big and round
Caterpillar finds a branch to spin all around In his cocoon seeping for some time
Dreams... until he grows some wings And becomes a butterfly.

Story The three butterflies
Once upon a time, there were three little butterfly brothers, one white, one red, and one yellow. They played in the sunshine. They dance among the flowers in the garden. They were so happy.
One day, there comes a heavy rain and the butterflies are wet. They fly away home.
When they get there, they find the door is locked and the key is gone.
So they have to stay in the rain and they are wet, very wet.
By and by, they fly to the red tulip. They say.
Beautiful tulip, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over?
The tulip answers: The red butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and yellow may not come in.
The red butterfly says: If my white and yellow brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them.
So the three butterflies fly away.
By and by, they fly to the yellow daffodil. They say.
Beautiful daffodil, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over?
The daffodil answers: The yellow butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and red may not come in.
The yellow butterfly says: If my white and red brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them.
So the three butterflies fly away.
By and by, they fly to the white lily. They say.
Beautiful lily, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over?
The lily answers: The white butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and red may not come in.
The white butterfly says: If my yellow and red brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them.
So the three butterflies fly away.
But the sun, who is behind a cloud, can hear it, and he knows the butterflies are very good brothers.
So he pushes his face through the clouds, chases the rain away and shines in the garden.
He dries the wings of the three butterflies, and warms their bodies.
They stop to cry, and dance among the flowers. They fly away home and find mommy at the door.

Chant Oh Mister Sun
Oh Mister sun, mister gold sun, please shine down on me
Oh Mister sun, mister golden sun, hiding behind the tree
Your children are asking you to please come out, So we can play with you

Song: Knock, knock, knock. Who is knocking? Who is at my door?

Poem
A little seed for me to sow A little earth to make it grow
A little hole, a little pat, A little wish, and that is that,
A little sun, a little shower. A little while - And then, a flower!

Chant Five Little Flowers
Five Little Flowers Standing in the sun
[Hold up 5 fingers.]
See their heads nodding, Bowing one by one
[Bend fingers several times.]
Down, down, down Comes the gentle rain
[Raise hands, wiggle fingers and lower hands.]

[Hold up 4 fingers.]
Four little flowers growing side by side.
Up came another and then there were five.

Poem My Garden
This is my garden
[Extend palm.]
I rake it with care
[Pretend to rake with three fingers.]
And then I plant flower seeds in there
[Pretend to plant.]
The sun will shine

And the rain will fall
[Wiggle fingers on both hands as move downwards.]
And my garden will blossom
[Cup hands.]
And grow straight and tall
[Stretch arms/hands up slowly.]

I will send my little fairy folk To dry your fallen tears."
One came in pink and one in red, The next in orange bright.

“Let me taste your ware.”

“Show me first your penny.”

“Indeed, I have not any.”

For to catch a whale;
All the water he had got,
Was in his mother’s pail.

If plums grew on a thistle,
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.
Then Simple Simon went a hunting,
For to catch a hare;
He rode on a goat about the street,
But could not find one there.
He went for water in a sieve
But soon it all run through;
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all adieu!

AFTER THE RAIN
Drip, drip, drip from the twigs and the leaves,
Drop, drop, drop from the drain-pipe and the eaves,
Plip, plip, plip making dimples in the sand,
Plap, plap, plap in the palm of my hand.
Driplets on the petal tips,
Droplets on the grass,
A-glistening in the sunlight
When the rain cloud has passed.
Paul King

THE RAINBOW
Red, and orange, and yellow, and green:
The rainbow’s seven colours have a bright shiny sheen.
Light blue, indigo, and violet all told.
At the end of the rainbow is a pot of gold.
Paul King

Five little birds without any home,
(raise 5 fingers of right hand)
Five little trees in a row.
(raise right hand high over head)
Come and build your nests in our branches tall
(cup left hand for nest-right fingers in)
We'll rock you to and fro.
(then rock both hands)

Here are the bee hives
(left hand cupped downward)
Where are the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
(hide fingers of right hand under it)
Soon they'll come creeping
(fingers come out one by one)
Out of the hives
One, two, three, four, five Buz-zz.
(hand circles around)

This is my right hand
Raise it up high.
This is my left hand
I'll touch the sky.
Right hand, left hand,
Twirl them around,
Left hand, right hand,
Pound, pound, pound.
This is my right foot,
Tap, tap, tap.
This is my left foot,
Pat, pat, pat.
Right foot, left foot,
Run, run, run.
Left foot, right foot,
Jump, jump for fun.

Little snail, little snail
On the rock, you leave a trail,
Carry your house upon your back,
It takes so long to get there and back,
But even though you’re not very fast,
You’re happy the spring sun has come at last.
