1. HAVE FUN WITH BOOKS
Can you and your child retell what happened in one of these stories:
Jocolibrary - Kids - Rain
Have you tried TumbleBooks, an online library of read-along stories, videos and language games for use on computer, Ipad and mobile devices?
Here are the rhymes and songs from today:
Welcome To Storytime! [tune: Twinkle, Twinkle]
Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now we're here, let's have some fun.
First we'll sing the ABC's,
then we'll read and sing with me.
Welcome, welcome, everyone,
Now we're here let's have some fun.
The sun in the sky (make a big round sun with your arms)
Heats up the ground, heats up the ground, heats up the ground
The sun in the sky heats up the ground and starts the water cycle.
The water on the ground (raise your hands up)
Evaporates up, evaporates up, Evaporates up,
The water on the ground evaporates up and turns into a gas.
The vapor in the clouds (squeeze your hands closed)
Condenses Condenses, Condenses
The vapor in the clouds condenses and becomes a liquid again.
The droplets in the clouds (make a raining motion with your fingers)
Precipitate down, precipitate down, precipitate down
The droplets in the clouds precipitate down and we call it rain.
The water cycle (circle your hands around each other)
Goes round and round, goes round and round, goes round and round
The water cycle goes round and round and it all begins again.
Rain is Falling on You [Tune: "Happy Birthday"]
Rain is falling on you, Rain is falling on me,
Rain is falling on everyone,
Rain is falling, Yippeee!!
First a little drop of rain hit the ground, tap, tap. [Tap your fingers]
Then another drop of rain hit the ground, tap, tap. [Tap your fingers]
Then another and another and another and another,
And pretty soon we heard a different sound, Splash!! [Clap hands]
The More We Read Together [Tune: The More We Get Together]
The more we read together, together, together,
The more we read together, the better it is!
'Cause reading and singing and talking together,
Is how you learn the six skills for reading by six.
