Weather Song (to the tune of Clementine)
What’s the weather? What’s the weather? What’s the weather like today?
Tell me _(insert kids name)__ what’s the weather, What’s the weather like today?
Is it sunny? Is it rainy? Is it cloudy out today?
Is it snowy? Is it windy? What’s the weather like today?
— No Time for Flashcards.
We really enjoy singing the above Weather Song. Mrs, Sayuri enjoys answering what the day’s weather is like after we sing. Her answers lately have been “rainy” or “cloudy”, although we have been having some sun in the mornings. She thinks the snowy part is funny though because she says since we live in Costa Rica we don’t get snow, “but if we lived in New York like Grandma and Grandpa D we would!”
Earlier this week we had torrential rain – much of our house had leakage through window slats and the sinks were spouting water through the drains! We had power outages too – Mr. Happy Feet didn’t care for those too much, but we made the most of it. We snuggled up close all cozy and warm in bed (body heat is the best!) and read by candlelight. We are currently reading the Boxcar children books. It’s such a great, fun series for children. I really like how the characters in it are so resourceful.
Songs are a one of my favorite ways for Mrs. Sayuri to learn things.
