I’d like to share with you a fun and easy Springtime sing-along song to teach preschoolers. This song can be found in my Springtime lesson plan, but you could really could use this one any time of the year.
Five Flowers Tall is a piggyback song of Five Little Ducks.
Teach your students to sing this simple song. Have students hold up 5/4/3/2/1 fingers for each verse of the song. You can also substitute students’ names in place of “Jim.” You can also change the color of each flower.
Here are the lyrics:
Five flowers tall in the flower shop, (hold up hand with five fingers standing tall)
Blooming brightly, with the petals at the top.
Along came Jim (or name a child) with a dollar one day,
Bought a _____ (child names a color) flower and took it away. (put one finger down)
Repeat for the remaining four fingers.
