I will make a poster showing a window (a sketch below) and put it on the
board with magnets
I have four transparent foils with either raindrops, flying leaves and bent
trees, sun shining or clouds in the sky (something similar as with my prop)
I put the first foil on my window and ask the children: Whats the weather
Its sunny. Its sunny. I answer (I repeat this with all four kinds of weather)
I repeat the whole rhyme again, but this time I stop before saying Its
rainy/sunny/windy/cloudy and let the children think of what they should
say then I repeat the phrase several times and make them repeat after
We repeat the whole rhyme several times together with the learners
