Sunny Day/Rainy Day uses the weather to help emerging language learners

There are so many songs to sing about the weather! Rain, Rain, Go Away … The Eensy Weensy Spider … and Let It Snow! This four-week unit combines your favorite children’s songs about the weather and combines them with interactive stories and activities — carefully created to help emerging language learners.

First, we’ll meet Teddy Bear, who is learning what to wear in the weather! Should he wear a rain hat in the snow? No! We’ll help Teddy Bear get dressed, learn colors and the English words clothing (such as blue jeans and rain hat), as well as help emerging language learners in your classroom develop rhythm, solve problems, sing, share, and take turns — all while developing a musical love for English!
