5 Little weathermen
Counting Fingerplay
5 little weathermen sitting on a gate.
The first one said, "My it's getting late".
The second one said, "There are storm clouds in the sky".
The third one said, "Let's run inside".
The fourth one said, "Wait, the sun is peeking out".
The fifth one said, "That's what weather's all about".
ooooo....went the wind, and up flew their kite,
and the 5 little weathermen chased it out of sight.
Eensy weensy spider
Eensy weensy spider
Went up the water spout('Climb' up arm)
Down came the rain(Wiggle fingers down from head to waist)
And washed the spider out(Throw arms to sides)
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain(Raise hands above head, make circle for sun)
Now the eensy weensy spider
Went up the spout again.
