Brief text and illustrations describe a rainstorm.
Songs
Rain, Rain, Go Away
Rain, rain, go away.
Come again another day.
Clouds, clouds, go away.
Little children want to play.
Thunder, thunder, go away.
Little children want to play.
Rain, rain, come back soon.
Little flowers want to bloom.
The Raindrop Song
If all the raindrops
Were lemon drops and gumdrops,
Oh, what a rain that would be!
Standing outside, with my mouth open wide.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!
If all the raindrops
Were lemon drops and gumdrops,
Oh! What a rain that would be!

Flannel Board Story: Five Umbrellas

Five umbrellas stood by the back door,
The red one went outside, then there were four.
Four umbrellas stood pretty as can be,
The blue one went outside, then there were three.
Three umbrellas stood with nothing to do,
The green one went outside, then there were two.
Two umbrellas stood watching for the sun,
The yellow one went outside, then there was one. Just one umbrella stood alone in the hall,
The white one went outside, and then that was all!
Notes
Let the children retell the flannel board story as part of a center. Also had a rain, clouds, and lightning matching file folder game for them to use.
