Poems about Spring
- Spring is Here
- A Little Seed
- Five Little Flowers
Spring is Here
This simple poem is perfect as a Spring song for kids. Sung to the tune of “Frere Jacques”, Spring is Here is great for choral reading, is simple and short, and can easily incorporate movement for retelling.
Research proves “…movement increases blood and oxygen flow, which positively affects cognitive development, physical health, and mental well-being.” (Education Week, 2017)
This Spring poem can also be turned into a call and response for classroom management. For example, explain to them that you will say the first line in the poem. When they hear you say “Spring is here”, they are to stop what they are doing and repeat that line. By the time you get through the entire poem, they should be completely done with their activity.
You’ll hear the kids bust out in laughter as you reach the last line, “big fat worms”. For some reason, calling worms big and fat is hilarious to the little kids. To carry on the enthusiasm, this poem also leads into a wonderful science lesson: observing, drawing, and journaling about worms. Now, if only it was that easy for us to accept worms in the classroom 🙂
After a long Winter, I love the signs of Spring. To me, it’s one more reminder that Summer is just around the corner. What teacher doesn’t love Summer?
The green grass, blooming flowers, birds singing, bees buzzing, and kites flying in the blue skies, are all sure signs of Spring. This Spring poem for kids is a reminder that springtime is here!
A Little Seed
A Little Seed has been my go-to poem when introducing plants and flowers. It is also great for sight words, rhyming, and sequencing a plant life-cycle. Extend the flowers and plants lessons with these independent writing activities.
Five Little Flowers
Five Little Flowers has endless learning opportunities, such as color words, sight words, number words, sequencing, expression, and fluency. This printable Spring poem for kids is excellent for readers theater and shared reading.
