Sing a Song

The Clouds in the Sky

Sometimes the sky is blue and sometimes the sky is gray. Here is a song about the clouds called The Clouds In The Sky. Tune: The Wheels on the Bus

The clouds in the sky go
Boom, boom, boom,
Boom, boom, boom,
Boom, boom, boom.
(clap hands on "boom")
The clouds in the sky go
Boom, boom, boom.
All night and day.

The rain falling down goes
Plink, plink, plink......
(move fingers down in front )
All night and day.
Sad little children cry
Go away, go away, go away......
(sad faces, wipe eyes)
All night and day.
The flowers and the trees go
Yum, yum, yum.....
(rub tummy)
All night and day.
The creatures all around go
Scrub, scrub, scrub......
(wash self all over)
All night and day.

The sun behind the clouds says
Move away, move away, move away.....
(push clouds away)
All night and day.
The clouds in the sky say
See you soon, see you soon, see you soon.....
(wave)
All night and day.

Watch

The Colors! Gray!

Try This

Today's color is gray. Castles are often gray and made of stone. Can you and your child draw a castle and then make up a story about the family that lives in the castle?
