Weather - August 4-8

 During our weather week, we learned about different types of weather.  We talked about sunshine, clouds, lightning, thunder, hurricanes, tornadoes, wind...all of it!  The children really enjoyed this week, thanks to our teachers who did a great job coming up with fun ways of learning!  Here's a little of what we did...

The one-year-olds glued cotton balls onto blue paper to represent clouds.  They also painted beautiful rainbows!

The two-year-olds painted lightning bolts and made really cute clouds and rain.  They colored umbrellas too!

The three-year-olds gazed at clouds when they talked about cloudy weather.  They colored hot cocoa mugs when they talked about snow.  When they talked about stormy weather they sprinkled sand on a tornado swirl drawn out with glue and painted a tornado too.  They watched The Wizard of Oz that day with the Pre-K class.  When they learned about sunny days, they set up centers outside to play and enjoy the sunshine with the Pre-K class.  And Friday was a water day!  They also created a weather graph with the children's favorite weather.  Surprisingly, their favorite weather was rain...probably because Ms. Ashley enjoys letting the kids play in the rain a little on rainy days!

The Pre-K class decorated beautiful umbrellas for their bulletin board.  They enjoyed playing a weather match game and drawing pictures of their favorite type of weather.  In a great weather literacy activity, they read the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk, then made their own cloud drawings.  For a special snake, they made dirt cake complete with gummy frogs and worms!

Have a wonderful week (we sure are!) and be on the lookout for our post on our Home on the Range Cowboy and Cowgirl Week!
