Months of the Year


“Apples, Peaches, Pears and Plums” This is a good song to practice singing the months or to sing at the beginning of the year as a get to know you song.

Apples, peaches, pears and plums,
Tell me when your birthday comes?

(Kids stand up when they hear their birth month and stay standing. Once you have gotten to December, sing the song again and the kids sit down as they hear their birthday month. Also, you can do a beat from one leg to the other as you say the months.)

January, February, March, April,
May, June, July, August, September,
October, November, December?

Another way I teach the months is to sing the months to the tune of “10 Little Indians”.  At the end we sing “Those are the months of the year” or “There are 12 months in a year.”
