Watch the link on Youtube. Use the first part of the song as a Chorus between each section of the sensory story: 

 

How’s the weather, how’s the weather,

how’s the weather today?

Is it sunny? Is it rainy? Is it cloudy? is it snowy?

How’s the weather today.

CHORUS

Above a messy house, in a messy lane,

The clouds go dark and it begins to rain!                                      

Spray child with the water spray

CHORUS

As he looks outside, the skies fill with cloud,

The wind begins to howl, very, very loud! 

Use a fan or blow and make wind noises

“I can’t believe it, it’s a monsoon”.                                                 

It even blew away Morgan’s balloon.     

Blow a balloon up a bit then let it fly away

“I will get out today!” Morgan cries with all his might,

“I’ll stand on top of Windy Hill if I can find my kite.”                  

Wave parachute up and down

Parachute or sheet or teal towel

CHORUS

“Found it!” Morgan yelps, but wouldn’t you just know,

It took him so long that now it’s started to snow!            

Spray soapy foam or fake snow

Soapy foam

CHORUS

Morgan wanted to go for a walk with his dog

But “Oh no, I can’t see with all that thick fog!”                          

Blow clouds of bubbles

CHORUS

“That fog is thick, oh deary me!

I must find my torch so I can see!”

CHORUS

“Found it!” he cried, but a flash made him wonder,

Followed by a roll of thunder! 

Stomp with feet and bang with hands

 

CHORUS

“That’s enough!” cried Morgan and shook his head,

“I’m not going out, I’ll stay in bed!”                                                

Pretend to lie down and go to sleep

Soft pillow or cushion

CHORUS
