Caterpillar to Butterfly


From Caterpillar to Butterfly
(tune: Clementine)
Caterpillar, caterpillar,
Eating leaves and crawling round;
You are big and so you make a
Chrysalis far off the ground.

Caterpillar, caterpillar,
You are such a big surprise.
You have wings and your'e so lovely!
Oh, I can't believe my eyes.

Frogs Life Cycle

Five Little Tadpoles
Five little tadpoles swimming near the shore.
The first on said, "Let''s swim some more!"
The second one said, "Let's rest awhile."
The third one said, "Swimming makes me smile!"
The fourth one said, "My legs are growing long!"
The fifth one said, "I'm getting very strong!"
Five little tadpoles will soon be frogs.
They'll jump from the water and sit on logs.

U is for Umbrella


One Rainy Day by M. Christina Butler

Rain, rain, go away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Little (insert child's name) wants to play

Rain on the grass
Rain on the grass
Rain on the trees
Rain on the rooftops
But not on me!
Show children how to imitate rain falling by wiggling their fingers as they bring their hands downward for the first three lines of each stanza. When they say the last line "But not on me" have them interlock their fingers and hold them over their head, imitating an umbrella. 
Thunder, Thunder
tune of Frere Jacques
Thunder, thunder
(hit palms of hand on the floor)
hear me roar, hear me roar,
pitter patter rain drops, pitter patter rain drops,
 (take finger tips and tap the floor)
I'm all wet, I'm all wet.
(shake your hands like you are wet)
