Our Playful Preschool Series theme this week is weather. We have featured a few preschool songs in this series including “I’m a Hungry Spider” and “The Leaves of of the Trees”. This week we created a preschool song all about clouds.
Preschool Song: I’m a Cloud

Why We Chose This Activity
My youngest son loves to sing. We are constantly taking familiar songs and making up our own verses. Since we are starting to spend more time outside now that the weather is warming up, we thought it would be fun to create a song about the clouds.
Phonological awareness skills help your little ones with reading down the road. Singing preschool songs are a great way to develop phonological awareness skills.
Print and Sing
Print the song that you can download here to have on hand until you can memorize the catchy little tune.
I’m a Cloud (based on the tune “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”)
I’m a cumulus cloud.
Puffy and floating through the sky
Piling on top of other clouds is how I like to pass by.
I can be white or gray depending on what is coming your way.
I look like cauliflower in the sky, cauliflower in the sky, cauliflower floating through the sky.
Cauliflower in the sky , cauliflower in the sky, watch me pass by.
I’m a stratus cloud.
Filling up the sky.
Dark and gray are my colors for I have moisture inside.
Will it be rain or snow? Only the temperature knows.
Bringing rain or snow, bringing rain or snow, bringing rain or snow to you today.
Bringing rain or snow, bringing rain or snow, bringing rain or snow your way.
I’m a cirrus cloud.
Thin and wispy in the sky
Way up high and floating right on by
I signal nice sunny weather. So get outside to play.
It’s going to be a great day. It’s going to be a great day. Look up in the sky today.
It’s going to be a great day. It’s going to be a great day. Look up in the sky, hooray!
