Weather Song

Tune: “Bingo”
There was a time when we were wet, and rainy was the weather
R-A-I-N-Y, R-A-I-N-Y, R-A-I-N-Y and rainy was the weather

There was a time when we were hot, and sunny was the weather
S-U-N-N-Y, S-U-N-N-Y, S-U-N-N-Y and sunny was the weather

There was a time when we were cool, and windy was the weather
W-I-N-D-Y, W-I-N-D-Y, W-I-N-D-Y and windy was the weather

There was a time when we were cold, and snowy was the weather
S-N-O-W-Y, S-N-O-W-Y, S-N-O-W-Y and snowy was the weather

Mister Sun

Lyrics by Raffi

Oh Mister Sun, Sun
Mister Golden Sun
Please shine down on me

Oh Mister Sun, Sun
Mister Golden Sun
Hiding behind the tree

These little children
are asking you
To please come out
so we can play with you

Oh Mister Sun, Sun
Mister Golden Sun
Please shine down on me

What's the Weather?

Tune: "Oh, My Darling Clementine”
What's the weather, what's the weather?
What's the weather everyone?
Is it windy, is it cloudy?
Is there rain or is there sun?

Look Outside

Tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”
Look outside now, can you say
What the weather is today?
Is there sunshine, is there rain?
Is wind blowing down the lane?
Look outside now, can you say
What the weather is today?

Look outside now, can you say
What the weather is today?
Are there snowflakes falling down?
Are there big clouds floating around?
Look outside now, can you say
What the weather is today?

It Is Raining

Tune: “Are You Sleeping?”
It is raining, it is raining
On my head, on my head
Pitter, patter raindrops
Pitter, patter raindrops
I'm all wet; I'm all wet 

I See the Wind

I see the wind when the leaves dance by (dance hands around)
I see the wind when the clothes wave, "Hi!" (wave hand)
I see the wind when the trees bend low (bend arms over and down)
I see the wind when the flags all blow (wave arms high)
I see the wind when the kites fly high (raise arms high)
I see the wind when the clouds float by (wave hand gently)
I see the wind when it blows my hair (lift hair with hands)
I see the wind 'most everywhere (hold hands out, palms up)

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 and 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

Rainbow Dancers Scarf Rhyme

by K at Storytime Fun

Rainbow dancers let’s get ready
Hold your scarves nice and steady
You’ll hear the colors of the rainbow
Listen for your time to go

Shake red…
Shake orange…
Shake yellow…
Shake green…
Shake blue…
Shake purple…

Red scarves turn around
Orange scarves up and down
Yellow scarves reach up high
Green scarves fly, fly, fly
Blue scarves tickle your nose
Purple scarves touch your toes

Everybody dance around
Swirl your scarves up and down

Shake purple…
Shake blue…
Shake green…
Shake yellow…
Shake orange…
Shake red…

Rainbow dancers dance around
Scarves swirl up and down
Our colorful dance is at an end
Thank you, thank you, all my friends
