Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling, My Son John

Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling, My Son John

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John,

Went to bed with his trousers on;

One shoe off, one shoe on,

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John.

JUNE

June – and school is over soon!

Then all we’ll do each day

Is play and play – hooray!

Summer arrives June 21st – the longest day of the year.

We’ll laze on the grass and listen, and hear:

Bees buzzing!  Hummingbirds whirring!  Worms wiggling!

June is laughing, golden, giggling!

Today I’ll visit the book and di in my toes.

I’ll perch at the edge, and hope a butterfly lands on

My nose.

MARCH

By Patricia Scarry

March is gusty, muddy, blustery.  This is the month

For flying kites, roller-skating, rattly nights.

Wear something green on St Patrick’s Day.

Robins sing, “Spring is on the way!”

And bears wake up from their winter’s sleep.

I’m a Little Snowman

I’m A Little Snowman

From NurseryRhymes.org

I’m a little snowman short and fat,

Here is my scarf and here is my hat.

When I see the snow fall,

Here me shout

“All you children please come out!”

JANUARY

By Patricia Scarry

January starts the brand-new year with snow for sledding,

skiing, snowmen.  There are icy ponds for skating on.

Mittens drip,

And there’s cocoa to sip.

This month there’s a nice thing to do:

Throw crumbs to the birds! They’re hungry too!

Whether The Weather

Standard

WHETHER THE WEATHER

Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!
