Windy Theme

Kate, Who Tamed the Wind by Liz Garton Scanlon & Lee White

Oh, what fun can we have with this book! Before your class meets for story time bring in a fan that has different speeds. When the story starts off the wind is blowing softly so start the fan on low. Gradually move the switch to a strong wind. If you have wind chimes a portable clothes line with clothes attached, the class will get all the sensory effects of the wind blowing.

We will continue to use the fan in other activities under this theme.

The Trees Are Blowing

By Vicky Manning

The trees are blowing one by one hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing one by one hurrah, hurrah

The trees are blowing one by one

The tallest one falls but we’ve just begun

So the song keeps going on and on

Until the rain comes down, tap, tap, tap!  (Tap top of leg lightly)

The trees are blowing two by two hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing two by two hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing two by two

The next one falls on a canoe

And the song keeps going on and on

Until the rain comes down, tap, tap, tap! (Tap top of leg lightly)

The trees are blowing three by three hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing three by three hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing three by three

The next one falls into the sea

And the song keeps going on and on

Until the rain comes down, tap, tap, tap! (Tap top of leg lightly)

The trees are blowing four by four hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing four by four hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are blowing four by four

The next one falls through a store

And the song keeps going on and on

Until the rain comes down, tap, tap, tap! (Tap top of leg lightly)

The trees are falling five by five hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are falling five by five hurrah, hurrah.

The trees are falling five by five

The next one falls and we’ve all survived

And this song stops while we take a dive

Inside from the rain, Tap! Tap! Tap! (Tap top of leg hard and fast)
