Song: “It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More”
It ain’t gonna rain no more, no more
It ain’t gonna rain no more
*Oh no, it’s up to my toe
But it ain’t gonna rain more.

Oh gee, it’s up to my knee
Oh my, it’s up to my thigh
Oh fiddle, it’s up to my middle
Oh heck, it’s up to my neck
Oh dread, it’s up to my head, I’m just going to swim on home.

Book: Raindrop, Plop by Wendy Cheyette Lewison, illustrated by Pam Paparone

Activity: “Make a Thunderstorm”
First we rub hands together,
then click your tongue,
clap you hands,
slap your knees,
stomp your feet.
reverse to make the rain “stop.”
