We’ve been keeping busy the last couple of weeks preparing for Valentines Day and starting a new unit about the Seasons/Weather! We learned about clouds, how they are made, what comes from them, and how many different types there are. Ms. Bennet got a few books about clouds from the library and we have enjoyed taking them outside on the playground and trying to figure out what kind of clouds are in the sky! We also love trying to find pictures in the clouds!
I used a globe that I borrowed from another teacher for our space unit to show the children why we have seasons. I’ve showed them a few times and many of them think it’s very interesting! They’ve also enjoyed helping read the the book, “It Looked Like Spilt Milk” and we made our own spilt milk pictures using blue construction paper and white paint! We also made raindrops by gluing a variety of blue items onto a raindrop shape (although we did learn in one of our books that raindrops are not, in fact, teardrop shaped).
So far, we’re off to a good start – if it weren’t for spending so much time on Valentine’s day activities – we could have done even more! 🙂
