Preschool Story Time (Rainy Day Theme), 8/10/12

Opening Song: Hello, how are you?

Song (with rainstick): It’s Raining it’s Pouring

Book: Rain by Robert Kalan, illustrated by Donald Crews (1978)

Song: I Like to see the Raindrops Fall

I wrote the words to this song, which is sung to the tune of Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush:

I like to see the raindrops fall, 
the raindrops fall, the raindrops fall
I like to see the raindrops fall 
on a stormy day.

I like to hear the thunder  clap
the thunder clap, the thunder clap
I like to hear the thunder clap
on a stormy day.

I like to see the lightning flash, 
the lightning flash, the lightning flash
I like to see the lightning flash
on a stormy day.

Song: Here We Go Up, Up, Up

Book: Rain Drop Splash by Alvin Tresselt, illustrated by Leonard Weisgard (1946)

Rhyme: Rain is Coming Down

Song with Flannel Board and Ukulele: Red Umbrella Keeps Me Dry

Sung to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb:

Red umbrella keeps me dry,
keeps my dry, keeps me dry. 
Red umbrella keeps me dry
on a rainy day. 

Change colors and repeat.

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Book: In the Middle of the Puddle by Mike Thaler, illustrated by Bruce Degen (1988)

Song: Rain Rain Go Away
I used zoo animal puppets and substituted the line "Little Johnny wants to play"  with "little giraffe wants to play," "little elephant wants to play," etc.

Song: Sunny Day

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
