Weather word wall art in PreK!

Here in the midwest, we have been experiencing extreme changes in weather. During the month of February we have had sunny days in the upper 60’s to snowy and cold days in the mid 20’s to windy and rainy days…

With all the extreme changes in weather it is the perfect time of year here in my hometown to talk about the weather with my students…

The art you are viewing today is our Word Weather Wall Art…

The prek children either traced or wrote one weather word on each piece of paper then followed up the word with a painting that represented that word…

For today, we explored the words rain, cloud, sun, and rainbow…

There are so many wonderful ways to explore weather in the preschool classroom…

To find out more, come and visit me  over on the PrekandK Sharing blog! Today I am sharing a few ideas for talking about the weather with young children.

    Our weather has been nuts – no real snow to speak of this year – I wore my winter coat once! I think the kids are sick of seeing clouds and rain – I know I am!
    I love weather related creatives – it is a great way to help the kids understand weather more.
