Months of the Year

As December comes to a close my mind turn to celebrating the New Year. I haven’t really found any good picture books about celebrating a new calendar year. However, it is a great time to talk about the passage of time.

Several years ago my colleague Elizabeth shard with me her poem about all twelve months that she used with flannel boards. It is set to the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” I made a slight alteration in December depending on if I wanted to reference Santa or not. If not, I have a snow covered pine tree to use instead. It has take me the intervening several years to finish creating this flannel because it kept getting put the back of my to do pile. I really liked how it turned out.

January, January, what do you see?
I see snowflakes falling on me.

February, February, what do you see?
I see valentines coming to me.

March, March, what do you see?
I see shamrock coming to me.

April, April, what do you see?
I see raindrops falling on me.

May, May, what do you see?
I see spring flowers looking at me.

June, June, what do you see?
I see ants crawling on me.

July, July, what do you see?
I see fireworks popping for me.

August, August, what do you see?
I see the hot sun shining on me.

September, September, what do you see?
I see the school bus waiting for me.

October, October, what do you see?
I see a jack-o-lantern smiling at me.

November, November, what do you see?
I see a turkey running from me.

December, December, what do you see?
I see a snow covered pine tree standing majestically.
