Insects/Spring - Songs

Bugs
Sung to: "Frere Jacques"

Big bugs, small bugs, big bugs, small bugs,
See them crawl on the wall?
Creepy, creepy, crawling, never, never falling.
Bug, bugs, bugs, bugs, bugs, bugs.


Flutter, flutter, Butterfly
Sung to: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Flutter, flutter, butterfly.
Floating in the summer sky.
Floating by for all to see,
Floating by so merrily.
Flutter, flutter, butterfly,
Floating in the summer sky.


Can you move with me?
Sung to: "Do Your Ears Hang Low"

Can you wiggle like a worm?
Can you squiggle? Can you squirm?
Can you flutter? Can you fly like a gentle butterfly?
Can you crawl upon the ground
Like a beetle that is round?
Can you move with me?
Can you flip? Can you flop?
Can you give a little hop?
Can you slither like a snake?
Can you give a little shake?
Can you dance like bee
Who is buzzing round a tree?
Can you move with me?


Oh, the ants are busy!
Sung to: "She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain"

Oh, the ants are busy, busy as can be.
Oh, the ants are busy, busy as can be.
See them dig and dig and dig.
Lots of tunnels, oh, so big.
Oh, the ants are busy, busy as can be.



Ladybug Fly
Sung to: "Three Blind Mice"

Fly, fly, fly
Ladybugs fly Fly over here
Fly over there
They fly up high and they fly down low.
Around and around and around they go.
They fly fast, and they fly slow.
Oh, ladybugs fly


A Fly is on my toe
Sung to: "Farmer in the Dell"

A fly is on my toe,
A fly is on my toe,
Hi-ho, just watch me blow.
A fly is on my toe

Other verses: A fly is on my nose ,my head, my ear, my elbow, my knee,etc..


Insect
Sung to: "The Wheels on the Bus"

The firefly at night goes blink blink blink
Blink blink blink blink blink blink
The firefly at night goes blink blink blink
All around the town
The bees in the flowers go buzz buzz buzz....
The ants in the grass go march march march...
The crickets in the leaves go chirp chirp chirp...
The caterpillar in the field goes creep creep creep....


Little Black Bug

Little black bug, Little black bug
Where have you been?
I've been under the rug,
Said little black bug.
Bug-ug-ug-ug.

Little green fly, Little green fly,
Where have you been?
I've been way up high,
Said little green fly.
Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Little old mouse, Little old mouse,
Where have you been?
I've been all through the house
Said little old mouse.
Squeak-eak-eak-eak-eak.


Plants
Sung to: "The Farmer In The Dell"

The farmer plants the seeds
The farmer plants the seeds
Hi, Ho and Cherry O
The farmer plants the seeds
The rain begins to fall
The sun begins to shine
The plants begin to grow
The buds all open up
The flowers smile at me


Dandelions
Sung to: "Mary Had A Little Lamb"

Once there was a dandy lady,
Dandy lady, dandy lady,
Once there was a dandy lady,
Who loved to dance, they say.
She had beautiful hair of gold,..................
And loved to dance all day.
As time passed by and she grew old,.................
Her hair all turned to grey.
Now when the dandy lady dances,.................
Her hair all blows away.


Spring
Sung to: "The Mulberry Bush"

What a lovely time of year,
Time of year, time of year.
What a lovely time of year
In our springtime garden.
See the flowers swing and sway,
Swing and sway, swing and sway.
See the flowers swing and sway
In our springtime garden.


Spring Song
Sung to: "Are You Sleeping?"

I see robins, I see bird's nests
Butterflies too, flowers too
Everything is growing
The wind is gently blowing
Spring is here, spring is here


Parts of the flower
Sung to: "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"

Do you know the parts of plants, parts of plants?
Do you know the parts of plants, parts of plants?
All kinds of plants that grow and grow and grow.
Do you know the parts of plants, parts of plants?
The roots hold the plant in place, plant in place.
The roots hold the plant in place, plant in place.
The roots store food and water too.
The roots hold the plant in place, plant in place.
The stem moves water up the plant, up the plant.
The stem moves water up the plant, up the plant.
The stem brings water to the leaves.
The stem moves water up the plant, up the plant.
The leaves soak up the sun, soak up the sun.
The leaves soak up the sun, soak up the sun.
The sun helps the plant to grow and grow and grow.
The leaves soak up the sun, soak up the sun.
The flower grows into a fruit, into a fruit.
The flower grows into a fruit, into a fruit.
Inside the fruit are little, tiny seeds.
The flower grows into a fruit, into a fruit.


Ants Go Marching
(Students walk in pairs of 2 side by side each other in a circle)

The ants came marching two by two, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The ants came marching two by two
The little one stopped to tie his shoe.
They all go marching down around the town.
Boom, Boom, Boom.
Other Verses:The ants came marching three by three...The little one stopped to climb a tree.
The ants came marching four by four....The little one stopped to shut the door....
The ants came marching five by five...The little one stopped to take a dive....
The ants came marching six by six....The little one stopped to pick up sticks....
The ants came marching seven by seven....The little one stopped to go to heaven...
The ants came marching eight by eight...The little one stopped to shut the gate...
The ants came marching nine by nine...The little one stopped to scratch his spine...
The ants came marching ten by ten
The little one stopped to say THE END!

Baby Bumblebee

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Ouch! It stung me!

I'm squishing up the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm squishing up a baby bumblebee,
Ooh! It's yucky!

I'm wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Now my mommy won't be mad at me!

There was a bee-i-ee-i-ee
Sat on a wall-i-all-i-all
And he went buzz-i-uzz-i-uzz
And that was all-i-all-i-all

Sat on a bee-i-ee-i-ee
Someone went ki-yi-yi-yi-yi
And that was he-i-ee-i-ee


There's A Spider on the Floor
Tune: If You're Happy and You Know it
There's a spider on the floor, on the floor
There's a spider on the floor, on the floor
Who could ask for anything more
than a spider on the floor?
There's a spider on the floor on the floor.

There's a spider on my shoe, on my shoe
There's a spider on my shoe, on my shoe
Oh, I don’t know what to do,
there’s a spider on my shoe.

"But he jumps off"
There's a spider on the floor on the floor (repeat first verse)


The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Repeat With:
Great Big Spider
Rockin Roll Spider

I Know An Old Lady

I guess she'll die.

Millipede
Tune: Polly Wolly Doodle

Said the millipede,
As he gave a little squirm,
"Has anybody seen a leg o' mine?
If it can't be found,
I'll have to hop around
On the other nine hundred ninety-nine."

"Hop around, hop around,
On the other nine hundred ninety-nine;
If it can't be found,
I'll have to hop around
On the other nine hundred ninety-nine."

Great songs!! Will help them not be so afraid of bugs if they are singing about them and acting like them.
