Felt Board Poems: Weather Preschool Theme

Many preschool programs discuss weather during circle time as part of their daily routine. Sometimes, though, weather as an individual theme or topic can emerge with the children's interests, or specific program planning from the Educator. Recently, where I live, the weather has been stormy.  The rainfall level and leaves blocking the drain has caused extreme puddles along the city streets. Wind has brought down tree branches.  The following felt board activities, poems and stories have been selected to fall into a weather preschool theme.

Rain




5 Little Raindrops

Five little raindrops plopping on the floor,
One plopped away, and then there were four.
Four little raindrops dripping on the trees,
One dripped away, and then there were three.
Three little raindrops splashing on my shoe,
One splashed away, and then there were two.
Two little raindrops starting to run,
One ran off, and then there was one.
One little raindrop drying in the sun,
It dried all up, and then there were none!



Umbrella Felt Board Poem

Five umbrellas waiting for rain to pour
One was picked, and now there are four
Four umbrellas, saying pick me, pick me!
One was taken, and now there are three
Three umbrellas, wondering what to do
One was chosen, and now there are two
Two umbrellas waiting for some fun
One was picked and now there is one
One little umbrella, the rain is all done
He went home and now there are none.

 

Wind




Five Little Kites

Five little kites flying high in the sky
Said, "Hi!" to the cloud as it passed by,
Said, "Hi!" to the birds, said "Hi!" to the sun,
Said, "Hi!" to an airplane--oh what fun!
Then whish went the wind,
And they all took a dive:
One
   Two
       Three
         Four
           Five.




Five Little Leaves

Five little leaves so bright and gay
Were dancing about a tree one day
The wind came blowing through the town
And one little leave came tumbling down.


Five Little Sailboats

Five little sailboats went out one day
Into the ocean and far away
Over the waves the boats do rock
Two of the boats decide to dock

Three little sailboats in the sea
With the sun as happy as can be
Two of the sailboats want to stay
So anchors they drop, for the day

One sailboat left, away he goes
A gust of wind, it sure does blow
As he rides the waves up and down
All the way to another town!

Sunshine 

 

Big Sun

(sung to Row, Row, Row, Your Boat)
Bright sun shining down,
Shining on the ground.
What a lovely face you have,
Yellow, big and round


Snow



Five Little Snowflakes


One little snowflake with nothing to do
Along came another and then there were two
Two little snowflakes playing in a tree
Along came another and then there were three
Three little snowflakes looking for some more
Along came another and then there were four
Four little snowflakes that finally did arrive
Along came another and then there were five
Five little snowflakes having so much fun
Out came the sun and then there were none.

Clouds



The Clouds Are Passing By
Tune: “The Farmer In The Dell”
by Jean Warren

The clouds are passing by,
The clouds are passing by,
Heigh-ho, just watch them go,
The coulds are passing by.

The clouds are passing by,
Way up in the sky,
Sometimes fast, sometimes slow,
The clouds are passing by.

Slippery Fish for the Felt Board

 
 
 
 
 


Slippery Fish, Slippery Fish,
Swimming in the water
Slippery Fish, Slippery Fish,
Gulp, Gulp, Gulp

This was one of the first songs I learnt in the Early Childhood Field. I worked one on one with a girl who was hearing impaired and she use to sign along with me to fish, eating and the "oh no!" by emphatically and joyfully putting her hands to her cheeks.

Later, when my son was a toddler, it was one of his favourite songs, and we use to sing it together. He loved the ending! Such fond memories

It is a classic song for young children.  Thank you Charlotte Diamond!
