Music: 10 Little Bumblebees

It’s Friday!!!  That means I get to share one of my favorite things.  This week I want to share with you one of my favorite circle time songs.

I think one of the reasons I like this song so much is because I love the props my staff helped me make. They’re so cute, and so easy to make!

What you need: black gloves, yellow duct tape

We just took strips of tape and put them around the fingers to make little bumblebees.  We also made cute little antennas, but if I were doing it again, I would just forego that part.  Most of them were either ripped off or chewed off.

Why I love this song and the props, in no particular order 🙂

  • We’re learning about numbers
  • Putting on gloves is good fine motor work
  • Getting tactile input from the soft gloves
  • Learning to tolerate gloves for the winter season
  • Kids ask for help when they need it
  • Finger isolation when singing the song
  • Imitation skills
  • Proprioceptive input with tickling.  I like to tickle when the bees are buzzing all around
  • Kids share as we have one or two students pass out the gloves
  • Clean up, learning to put things away and waiting a turn to put their props back int he box
  • Attending.  Music is always a great motivator for attending and staying seated

Here are the words. Sung to the tune of 10 Little Indians

1 little, 2 little, 3 little bumblebees

4 little, 5 little, 6 little bumblebees

7 little, 8 little, 9 little bumblebees

10 little bumblebees buzzing all around
