What's the Weather?

We just kicked off our weather unit at preschool. Mother Nature has been gifting us with weather in the 70s which is unheard of in Vermont for this time of year. So it will be quiet on my blog while I savor these days, but I hope to post some of our weather activities once our temps go back to normal.

One find that I think others might like is this free printable "My Weather Wheel". I was looking for an easy way to make a movable weather wheel for every child, and this is really cute!

I also enjoyed this post that has links to a variety of weather printables & creating a Weather Busy Box

And our favorite weather song at preschool---

What's The Weather?
(sung to the tune of "Clementine")

What's the weather?
What's the weather?
What's the weather like today?
Tell us (child's name),
What's the weather?
What's the weather like today?
Is it sunny? [hold arms above head in a circle]
Is it cloudy? [cover eyes with hands]

Is it rainy out today?[flutter fingers downward]
Is it snowy?[wrap arms around body and shiver]
Is it windy? ["blow children over" with a swoop of your arms]

What's the weather like today?

Good-bye skiing,
hello picnics, and fishing, and bubbles, and gardening, and long walks in the woods...
The sunshine calls...
