A Little Garden Flower
Original Author Unknown

A little garden flower 
Is growing in its bed. (Make a fist with left hand.) 
A warm spring sun 
Is shining overhead. (Form circle with right thumb and finger.) 
Down come the raindrops, 
Dancing to and fro. (Move right fingers to make rain.) 
The little flower wakens 
And starts to grow. (Slowly extend index finger up from fist.)

Preschool Activities: 

With a black Sharpie, write the lowercase or uppercase letter F on the Styrofoam block.

Let children push the flower sticks along the outline of the letter F.
