Little Sammy Seed Finger Play

At Circle Time, invite children to take part in this finger play as they recite the rhyme.

Hey there little Sammy Seed,
Resting in the ground.
  [palms together, rest head on hands]
Will you grow into a plant,
That spreads its joy around?
  [turn around with arms outspread]

Sun and rain, and rain and sun
  [arms up for sun; arms move down with fingers wiggling for rain]
Help you grow up strong.
  [stand tall and straight]
Then come your pretty flowers
  [hand up above eyes, looking]
To last all summer long!
