It’s Raining It’s Pouring  1

Sing and Learn the Actions!


It 's raining, it 's pouring,
the old man is snoring.
He went to bed and he bumped his head and he couldn 't get up in the morning.

Rain, rain, go away
come again some other day.
Rain, rain, go away
come again some other day.



  • Create Environmental Percussion to match the sound of rain. These are found sounds that are made from anything in the natural or manmade environment. Use a cardboard roll, put small pebbles or some rice grains inside the roll, place aluminium tin foil on each end of the foil and secure with rubber bands. Tip your rain maker up and down along to the song.
  • Challenge - sing and play along to the instrumental version of the song.


  • What wet weather gear do you need if you want to play in the rain? e.g. raincoat, gumboots, umbrella
