May is Near - to the tune of "Frere Jacques"

I see flowers, I see flowers
Bloom each day, bloom each day.
May's the month for flowers,
No more April showers.
May is near, May is near.

Ring Around the May Pole - to the tune of "Ring Around the Rosie"

Ring around the May Pole,
Pockets full of flowers,
Ribbons, ribbons,
We all sing now!

May Pole - to the tune of "Did You Every See a Lassie?"

Did you ever see a May Pole,
A May Pole, a May Pole?
Did you ever see a May Pole
That looked so fine?
Turned ribbons on it for hours,
Then we filled it with flowers.
Did you ever see a May Pole
That looked so fine?

Five Pretty Flowers- to the tune of "Five Little Ducks"

Five pretty flowers colorful and bright,
Big ones, skinny ones, left and right,
But the one in the middle I like the most. ..
It is the lovliest I must boast!

APRIL-to the tune of "BINGO"

There is a month that brings us Spring,
And April is it's name-o.
And April is it's name-o.

The Dotty Spotty Ladybug to the tune of The Eentsy Weentsy Spider

The dotty spotty ladybug flew on the water spout
Down came the rain
and washed the ladybug out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the dotty spotty ladybug
Flew by me once again.

Try a classic song in English and Spanish! If your preschool child is learning a second language this is a perfect song to learn and sing to welcome Spring.

Rema, Rema, Rema Tu Bote to the tune of “Row, Row, Row your Boat"

Rema, rema, rema tu bote
Suave sobre la corriente.
Alegre, alegre, alegremente
La vida es sólo un sueño.

Here are the words in English:

Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream.

Here are some wonderful resources for seasonal songs, fingerplays and rhymes:
