First a little drop of rain hits the ground.
Then another drop of rain hits the ground.
Then another and another
and another and another,
And pretty soon you’ll hear a different sound.

SPLASH! SPLASH!

Rhyme: Playing in the Mud

One little kid went out to play,
In a huge mud puddle one day.
She found it such enormous fun,
That she called for another little kid to come.

Two little kids went out to play,
In a huge mud puddle one day.
They found it such enormous fun,
That they called for another little kid to come.

Three little kids went out to play,
In a huge mud puddle one day.
The mud went whoosh,
the mud went splat,
And all of a sudden they all fell flat.

Song: Raindrops Falling

(Sung to Frere Jacques)
Raindrops falling,
Raindrops falling,
From the sky,
From the sky.
Put up an umbrella,
Put up an umbrella,
Nice and dry,
Nice and dry.

Showers over,
Showers over,
Sun aglow,
Sun aglow.
See the pretty flowers,
See the pretty flowers,
In a row,
In a row.

Song: Weather Song
(sung to Clementine)

What’s the weather?

What’s the weather like today?
Is it foggy, partly cloudy, is it raining or is there snow.
Is it windy, is it cloudy or is there sun shine today.
What’s the weather? What’s the weather?
What’s the weather like today?

Rhyme: Eensy Weensy Spider

The eensy weensy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
So the eensy weensy spider
Climbed up the spout again.
