Goldilocks has invited her little bears to come and play
OUTSIDE the art room, just for today.
(Because it's raining)
The worms will think they’re giants, Rain puddles will be sky
Blue Bird will be watching from up on high
(Because it's raining)
Goldilocks and her little bears will dance in the rain
There is always magic when they’re together
(Even when it rains)
The rain is raining all around
It falls on fields and trees
It rains on the umbellas here
and on the ships at sea.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

" I hope." said Alice, "that you feed your babies wisely, on the creamiest of milk such as our clover gives."
"Milk!" exclaimed the bluebird in disdain. "My babies wouldn't look at it! Insects are what they like best."
"Insects," cried Alice, and her eyes grew as big as saucers.
"And worms," said the bluebird.
Alice fell flat on her back with horror.
"Why certainly," said the bluebird. "What is there surprising about that? Just try a worm someday."
"Give me some water!" Moaned Alice faintly.

Part one experience is going outside and dancing in the rain (moving, jumping, splashing, twirling) to a rhythm
Part two is students drawing a self portrait of themselves dancing in the rain.
While students are on carcpet revisiting rain stories or at tables drawing selfportraits, small groups come to the table where we create our milk paint and paper prints. We use descriptive words for colors, actions, and sounds of rain as we quietly work.
a. Respond in movement to a variety of sensory stimuli (for example, music/sound
b. Find a different way to do several basic locomotor and non-locomotor movements. Hop like a frog, waddle like a duck,wiggle like a worm, flap like a bluebird, twirl like the umbrella
a. Respond to suggestions for changing movement through guided improvisational experiences.
b. Identify parts of the body and document a body shape or position by drawing a picture
Hopping over puddles
Looking on an upside down world
Though a lake's eyes
Pretending to be giants
in an earth worm's world
And exploring the muck
under the drain storm pipes
We took a rain walk
And I was their guide.
