I am thankful for the rain. We're working on learning about our senses in our current unit. One of the storybooks is about listening to the rain. We managed to get eight 4 year olds to tip toe quietly outside when it started raining to listen to the drops hitting the ground. Then we walked to the covered walkway and listened to the rain falling from the roof into tiny puddles along the sidewalk. Then we discovered that if you let the rain falling from the roof splat into your hand it makes yet another sound. Such fun. I love my job.
