This week was all about weather! On we talked about different forms of weather, such as: tsunami, tornado, thunderstorms, wind storms, earthquakes, etc. We created some weather flip books so we were able to enhance our learning of familiar things that we know when it comes to weather. Something that the kid really enjoyed was the thunderstorm in a cup! We got cups of water, shaving cream and we discussed what each of those things represented. (Water= sky, shaving cream= clouds and blue food coloring= rain) We first talked about how rain clouds are created and why it does not rain right away, the clouds have to fill up with rain droplets and then it all comes out. As well they learned about different types of clouds and what kind of particles are in the clouds - rain droplets, snow and ice! We finally had some terrific weather this week, so we spent a lot of time outside, we are going to be enjoying the nice weather for the next couple weeks, watching our plants and watching for birds outside our classroom window. (Check out our class plants - tab above) As well we created our own math weather equations using umbrellas and hearts raining down! Check them out below!
As well they loved their root beer float reward on Friday! Way to go kiddos, let's get another reward before the end of the year, keep it up! :)
