Fingerplay: 5 Little Raindrops
Five little raindrops plopping on the floor,
one plopped away, and then there were four.
Four little raindrops dripping on the trees,
one dripped away, and then there were three.
Three little raindrops splashing on my shoe,
one splashed away, and then there were two.
Two little raindrops starting to run,
one ran off, and then there was one.
One little raindrop drying in the sun,
it dried all up, and then there were none!

Song: Noisy Wind (tune: “The Farmer in the dell”)
I like the noisy wind,
I like the noisy wind.
It roars and mutters (voice loud, then softer)
And Shakes the shutters. (shake hands Tambourine-Style.)
I like the noisy wind
I Like the Noisy wind,
I like the noisy wind.
It flaps the flag (flap your arms back and forth)
And rustles my bag. (rub hands together briskly)
I like the noisy wind.
