Here is the Beehive

Literacy Tip

Hi, I’m Gigi. There are lots of rhymes about the things we see around us. This rhyme about bees and a beehive can start a conversation with your child about where bees live, where they keep their honey, how they sound and what they look like. It can help your child learn new words and how the world works. The next time you see or hear about bees your child will know even more about these little creatures!


Here is the beehive (hold up fist)
Where are the bees?
Hidden inside where nobody sees.
Watch as they come out of the hive
One, two, three, four, five (put up each finger, one at a time)
They’re alive! (Buzz your fingers all around)
