The other day I was flipping through my stack of old issues of The Friend. Maybe you'll think I'm weird, but I really like to sit down with a stack of these magazines and just thumb through them, looking for ideas for singing time. I always find something I can use. I sometimes waste quite a lot of time doing this, because I have a pretty big stack of old issues! :o) However, this time wasn't wasted because I found this lovely little poem about spring to introduce my Spring Acrostic puzzle. (see the April 2009 issue, pg. 33) It's perfect! I'll read the poem and give the children a chance to tell me what they love about spring with each of the songs we sing.
