Bugs, bugs, bugs (and an occasional spider and worm). You’ll find plenty of all of them in “Going Buggy,” this month’s roundup of books and activities.  Look for ready-to use programs from Rose Trevino, Diane Briggs, Rob Reid, and others. This fingerplay from Diane Briggs is just one of the great ideas you’ll find to get your program underway.

Here Is the Beehive (Folk Rhyme)

Here is the beehive. Where are the bees? (Hold up your fist)

Hidden away where nobody sees. (Move your other hand around your fist)

Watch and you’ll see them come out of the hive (Bend your head close to your fist)

One, two, three four, five (Hold your fingers up one at a time)

Bzzzzzz……..(Wave your fingers)
