Down Came the Rain

"The itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout..." Almost everyone can sing along with this childhood favorite. More than just a fun rhyme to sing, Itsy Bitsy offers little ones a chance to work on their fine motor skills, those movement skills that translate later into holding scissors and pencils. Think of how the fingers move up and the arms make big circles. All great movements! Beyond that, think of the words of the song. Rain pours down, washes things away and later the sun dries everything up. It's a mini science lesson!
