Celebrate the blooming flowers of spring sprouting in our midst! I wrote this poem with music for a fun dancing activity. Divide the children into three groups – the seeds, the sun, and the rain. The seed group begins in the center crouched on the floor with heads down, hands and feet tucked under. First the sun group, then the rain group, dance around the seeds in turn as their music plays. Then the seeds have their turn to move, grow and dance with the blooming spring music. I usually invite everyone to come dance The Flower Dance together at the end! See my blog post about Dancing Spring for more background about this musical poem.
