The Umbrella Draw and Tell Story (2010 Summer Reading Manual, page 91)

 

 

Rain on the Housetop Rhyme

Rain on the housetop,

Rain on the trees,

Rain on the green grass,

but not on me!

 

Rain is Falling

(Tune: Frere Jacques)

Rain is falling, rain is falling,

All around! All around!

Pitter-patter raindrops,

Pitter-patter raindrops,

On the ground! On the ground!

 

Big Round Sun

The big round sun in the springtime sky
(form large circle with arms)


Winked at a cloud that was passing by.
(wink eye)

The little cloud laughed
as it scattered rain,
(flutter fingers downward)

Then out came the big round sun again.
(form large circle with arms)

 

5 Little Raindrops

Five little raindrops

plopping on the floor,

one plopped away,

and then there were four.

 

Four little raindrops

dripping on the trees,

one dripped away,

and then there were three.

 

Three little raindrops

splashing on my shoe,

one splashed away,

and then there were two.

 

Two little raindrops

starting to run,

one ran off, and

then there was one.

 

One little raindrop

drying in the sun,

it dried all up,

and then there were none!

 

During the Spring

During the Spring, it often showers
(Flutter fingers down)
Or the sun shines for many hours
(Form circle in the air with arms)
Both are good for the flowers!
(Cup elbow and extend arm like a flower)

 

 

 

Crafts: 


 

Umbrella picture

Make umbrellas out of pipe cleaner pieces and cupcake liners folded in half. Glue them onto a piece of paper and use cotton balls to make clouds. Then use q-tips or fingers in blue paint to make rain drops. 

 

 

Rainy Window Picture

This might take a little more prep work, but it is really cute!

Water Cycle Craft

Introduced how the water cycle works (in very simple terms, of course: water begins in lakes, gets warm and floats up to the sky to make clouds, and then when the clouds get too heavy, rain falls). Give kids construction paper raindrops, clouds, etc. to make their own picture of how the water cycle works.
