The Four Seasons

As you read the poem, find the picture of the word that should go in each blank.

In summertime it’s always fun
To be outdoors in the warm, bright _____,
To watch the _____ and _____ grow,
And sometimes see a bright ______.
When days are cooler in the fall,
I go to school and play ______.
I’ll wear a _____ with woolly sleeves
When I help my dad rake up the ______.
In wintertime the ______ turns brown,
And then the ______ tumble down.
I go out in my warmest clothes
To make a ______ with a ______ nose.
For wet and rainy days in spring,
My ______ is a handy thing,
When it’s dry and windy, I fly my ________,
Holding on to the _______ real tight.
Before ______ long, it’s summer, and then
I can go to the playground and ______ again.
There’s plenty to do all through the year,
But I like it best when summer is here.
