    My Garden

    In spring,

    I spade my garden,

    (Pretend to dig.)

    Then make a

    long, straight row.

    (Pretend to make a row with a hoe.)

    I place the seeds in

    one by one

    (Plant seeds.)

    And cover them,

    just so.

    (Pat dirt over seeds with hands.)

    I water all

    the little seeds,

    (Sprinkle seeds with pretend watering can.)

    Pull weeds

    until it’s neat.

    (Pretend to pull weeds.)

    Then I pick

    my vegetables.

    (Bend over and pick.)

    And eat,

    and eat, and eat.

    (Pretend to eat vegetables.)
