What’s one conversation we all have everyday? The weather. We teach our children when they wear raincoats, sunscreen or winter hats. The weather plays such a big part of their daily lives, what and where they can play and is connected to how they feel. Sunny days seem brighter and happier and sometime chilly days are dull and inside.
When talking about the weather change this fall, my middle child (who understands momstown’s literacy based curriculum well by now!) said "let’s make a W for Weather!" So we did!
Our lower case w was split into 4 weather conditions. Suns for “sunny”, fall leaves for “windy”, snow for “snowy” and rain drops for “rainy”. Or at least that was the approach,not all artwork represents the idea, right? Especially not with creative 2 year olds who like to mix all weather up because it is much prettier that way!
Construction paper for the background and the W
Glue and scissors
Sun = yellow foam circles or yellow paper, markers to draw on the sun rays
Windy = multicolour scraps for the fallen leaves to glue on
Snowy = cotton balls cut up into smaller white bits for snowflakes, glue ith white glue
Rainy = blue paint to “dab” with a paintbrush, qtip or fingertips (or have a big old rain storm and smear it everywhere!)
