I Hear Thunder

I Hear Thunder (1)

We’ve had crazy weather lately, including unseasonable May snow today. It had me thinking about weather songs to sing with Veronika, and this one has always been a favorite.

First, I simply sang the words for Veronika:

I hear thunder. I hear thunder.

Hear it roar. Hear it roar.

Pitter patter raindrops,

Pitter patter raindrops.

I’m all wet. I’m all wet.

The second time through, we added actions. You can just use your body at first: stomp feet on the floor for thunder, flutter your fingers through the air for rain, and give a big shiver at the end.

The shiver in particular made Veronika laugh every time!

Then we added props. Drums made the perfect thunder of course.

And shaky instruments like maracas and rain sticks were great for raindrops.

Veronika chimed in (literally!) on the triangle.

This all made for fun musical play on a windy cold morning.
