Song: (Tune: “The Farmer in the Dell”)
The gardener plants the seeds.
The gardener plants the seeds.
High ho the derry oh,
The gardener plants the seeds.

The rain falls on the ground…
The sun shines bright and warm…
The seeds begin to grow…
The flowers grow everywhere…

Rhyme: That’s Me Complete
I have ten little fingers and ten little toes (wiggle fingers and toes)
Two little arms and one little nose (wave arms, touch nose)
One little mouth and two little ears (touch mouth and ears)
Two little eyes for smiles and tears (touch your eyes)
One little head and two little feet (touch head, wiggle feet)
One little chin, that’s ME complete! (touch chin and pat chest)

Higher and higher and higher and higher
Bunny hop with me.

And one for her belly where the hot dog goes!
