Rain, rain,
Go away.
Come again
Another day.

Rain, rain,
Go away.
All the children
Want to play.

It's Raining

It's raining.
It's pouring.
The old man Is snoring.

He went to bed
And he bumped his head
And he couldn't get up
In the morning.

Rain Painting

Have children draw pictures with water soluble markers on white paper. Fill a spray bottle with water and have them make it "rain" on their picture. What happens? Dry flat.

Rainy Day Fun

Have children brainstorm things to do on a rainy day. Let them all draw a picture of their favorite thing and put them together to make a class book.

Rainy Day Reading

Get a large golf umbrella and open it up in a corner of your room. Place several "special" books under the umbrella and allow one or two children at a time to sit there and read.
