The first day of Spring, is Tuesday, March 20th.
Following is a poem about Spring by Else Holmelund Minarik. It might be fun to teach this poem to your children and combine it with a planting project. After all, fun learning is forever learning!
by Else Holmelund Minarik
Little seeds we sow in spring
growing while the robins sing,
give us carrots, peas and beans,
tomatoes, pumpkins, squash and greens.
And we pick them,
one and all,
through the summer,
through the fall,
Winter comes, then spring, and then
little seeds we sow again.
