Stand Up Sit Down Song by Rick Goldin
Everybody stand up
Everybody sit down
now stand up again, and turn around
you can keep standing up, but not for long
cause this is the stand up, sit down, 

stand up, sit down song

stand up if you're ___ years old
and sit back down again

stand up if you're ___ years old

and sit back down with your friends
(repeat until I get everyone)

Raindrops Roll by April Pulley Sayre.
Cloudette by Tom Lichtenheld.
The Rain Came Down by David Shannon.

Dance Freeze Melt by Mr. Eric and Mr. Micheal from Rockin' Red

Shadow Guessing Game
I used several small Ellison die-cuts to make 8 shadows from black felt. The kids easily guessed all the shapes so next time I might add a few more. 

Five Little Rain Drops - I use 5 simple teardrop shaped little flannel droplets but this works well as a finger play.

Five little raindrops (hold up five fingers)
Dancing on the walk (dance hand up and down)
Pitter patter, pitter patter,
that’s the way they talk. (pat legs)
Out comes the yellow sun, shining in the sky 
     (raise arms up like the sun)
And away goes one raindrop (hold up one finger)
Bye, bye, bye! (wave goodbye)

Windy Day by Carole Peterson from HUM
There was a man in our town
Went for a walk one day
The wind, it blew so very hard
It turned him the other way!

We’re Walking to the Drum by Kathy Reid-Naiman from I Love to Hear the Sounds

We’re walking we’re walking
we’re walking to the drum
we’re walking we’re walking
we’re walking now we’re done

Tip toeing

Weather Rhythms by Carole Peterson from H.U.M. - this song works well with rhythm sticks


The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together
The happier we'll be
For your friends are my friends
and my friends are your friends
The more we get together 
The happier we'll be

The more we read together, together, together
the more we read together
the happier we'll be.
Read big books and small books
Read short books and tall books
The more we read together
the happier we'll be.
