We studied weather in science way back in September. When talking about precipitation, we did this fun little activity about rain. First, we used TumbleBooks to view this book:
Some of the content was a little above the kids' heads, but it was a great read anyway! They really enjoyed it (of course, they enjoy every book we read on TumbleBooks)! After reading the book, we discussed why we liked rain and then recorded some responses on an anchor chart. Finally, the kids wrote their own sentences about why they liked rain. I don't have any close-ups of their writing (bad blogger) but I do have a picture of the bulletin board I made out of the prompt PLUS a copy of the prompt for you to download (redemption)!
I made the umbrella out of butcher paper and the clouds are just cotton balls glued onto cardstock. I know--fancy.
