Cloudy and Foggy!

We started our morning playing blocks. We made bridges and castles and tried to stack them to the ceiling!
LBQ- Have you ever seen any clouds shaped like an animal or something else?

After the pledge/ weather/ calendar, we sang a Weather song.
(to the tune of Oh My Darling Clementine)
How's the weather? How's the weather?
How's the weather, for you?
Is it windy? Rainy? Cloudy?
Or is the sun in skies of blue?
We read, What Will the Weather Be Like Today? by Paul Rogers. First we flipped through the pictures to see what we might understand about the story by just looking at the pictures. Then we read it to see if we were right. This is a fun way to read a book. After reading it we chose our favorite type of weather from the book.
Today we focused on clouds and fog. We talked about how earth is covered with clouds that are made up of H2O. Some are fluffy. long and wispy, dark and gray. The wind can move the clouds around the sky and sometimes a cloud can be near the ground. This is called and fog and it can be very hard to see in.
Next we started our weather books. We read the first two pages and glued our clouds on the first and our kites on the second. These books will be coming home on our last day of weather. Please look for these so your child can read it to you.
We reviewed our Ww pictures from Tuesday. Then we played is it 6? This is a fun way to have the kids count and decide if the objects add up to six or not. If they do then we place that picture under the happy face. If the objects do not add up to six then we place the picture under the sad face. We do some together on the white board and then we do the worksheet.
