Watermelon Theme

Watermelon Theme 


Summer is the perfect time for watermelon!

Show kids pictures of watermelon or show a real watermelon. Ask if they know what it is? What color is? Do you think green inside too? Ask if they tasted watermelon- describe its taste? sweet, or sour? What does the watermelon feel like- is it rough, or smooth? Is light or heavy? We are going to share books today all about watermelons. According to the website August 3rd is National Watermelon Day!

Watermelon Original Author Unknown (preschool

Sung to: "Are You Sleeping"

Watermelon, watermelon,
On the vine, on the vine,
Green and ripe and juicy,
Green and ripe and juicy,
Please be mine,
Please be mine.

The Watermelon Patch Song  Original Author Unknown (preschool

Sung to: "Are you Sleeping?"

 Watermelon, (Make a circle with your arms.)
 On the vine, (Curve hands and arms beside body.)
 On the vine,
 Sweet and red and juicy, (Rub your tummy.)
 Sweet and red and juicy,
 Please be mine! (Palms together as though pleading.)
 Please be mine!

 Watermelon, (Make a circle with your arms.)
 Thump, thump, thump, (Make a thumping movement with thumb and middle finger.)
 Thump, thump, thump,
 I think you are ready- (Point, resting finger on your temple.)
 I think you are ready-
 Big and plump! (Make a circle with your arms.)
 Big and plump!
