The students in our class were showing an interest a couple of weeks ago in the weather and the clouds that they saw outside. So we decided to start a unit on clouds and see how interested they were in looking at different kinds of weather. Apparently not very interested because we have decided to end our unit this week because they just didn’t seem to care anymore. That’s okay though because they did get to learn about different kinds of clouds and we did some really fun activities in the week and a half that they showed some interest!
We used the Rainy Day Sight Words pack to help reinforce sight word recognition. Students had fun picking a sight word, placing it on the work mat and then finding the right raindrop letters to spell the sight word.
We made line of symmetry cloud art. I allowed them to mix their own colours and experiment with making their own clouds, and they turned out fantastic!
We had a mini cloud sensory bin with my Match the Picture! activity. They loved searching through the cotton balls to find all the pictures and matching it up to their beginning sound.
We also discussed the different types of clouds and what clouds we saw outside. This chart paper idea is not mine, I got the idea for it here.
We had a lot of fun with clouds while it lasted, and I can’t wait to find out what they want to learn about next!
