When I taught this Theme to my pre-schoolers, I brought a finger puppet of a bee with me.  I handed each child a guiro to play the “buzzing” sound.  You can see how focused they are on the puppet.

The Chant is called, “Bees Are Buzzing”.  It begins, “Bees are buzzing in summertime, summertime, summertime…”.  The fingerplay is called “What Do Bees Do?”  Five activities introduce new vocabulary.  The Song is called, “Bees Make Honey”.  The repetition in this song makes it easy to memorize the more you sing it with your child.  Later, it makes it easy for your child learn to read it.
