Rain Songs, Poems, and Fingerplays to Share:

Thunder (Tune: “Frere Jacques”)
I hear thunder. I hear thunder.  (stamp feet on floor)
Hark do you, hark do you?  (place hand behind ear)
Pitter, patter raindrops,
pitter patter raindrops (Wiggle fingers down)
I’m all wet. (Point to yourself).
So are you. (point to a friend).

Rainbow Over Me 
Rainbow over the waterfall,
Rainbow over the tree,
Rainbow over the mountains,
Rainbow over the sea,
Rainbow over the flowers,
And rainbow over the bee,
Rainbow over the dancers,
And rainbow over me!

I Am an Umbrella (Tune: I’m a little teapot)
I am an umbrella, (arms down by sides)
Watch me now.
I can do a trick,
I’ll show you how.
When I open up (lift arms up)
I make a way
For you to be dry (hold arms above head, fingertips touching)
On a rainy day!

Come Under My Umbrella Song (Tune: The More we Get Together)
Come under my umbrella, umbrella, umbrella (arch arms over head like umbrella)
Come under my umbrella, it’s starting to rain.  (wiggle fingers as hands descend)
With thunder and lightning (slap thighs for thunder, arms in air for lightning)
And thunder and lightning.
Come under my umbrella, it’s starting to rain.

Shoo Rain Don’t Bother Me
Shoo, rain, don’t bother me . . .
Shoo, rain, don’t bother me . . .
Shoo, rain, don’t bother me . . .
For there’s a rainbow over me.
I splash, I splash, (stomp)
I splash when it’s wet outside.
I splash, I splash, (stomp)
I splash when it’s wet outside.

One Misty Moisty Morning (thumbs “talk” to each other)
One misty, moisty, morning,
When cloudy was the weather,
I met with an old man
All clothed in leather.
All clothed in leather,
With a cap beneath his chin.
Singing: How do you do?
And how do you do?
And how do you do again?
