Five Busy Honey Bees
Five busy honey bees were resting in the sun.
The first one said, "Let us have some fun."
The second one said, "Where shall it be?"
The third one said, "In the honey tree."
The fourth on said, "Let's make some honey sweet."
The fifth one said, "With pollen on our feet."
The five little busy bees sand their buzzing tune,
As they worked in the beehive all that afternoon.
Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz!
A-hunting we will go
A -hunting we will go
We'll catch a Bee!
and put it in a box(loudly)and then we'll let it go!
Note: Tell the children to not really catch a Bee or It could sting them

Place black, orange, yellow and brown crayons in a small container next to the pencils and blank cards.
Let the children explore the table with supervision, and encourage them to write the words for each item and a card and draw a picture.
Post their work on the wall around the table and remember to take pictures!
For fun give the children honey sticks with snack.
