Spring Weather Theme: Clouds

The girls are very interested in clouds these days so to end our Spring Weather Theme we talked a bit about clouds.

Books:

Cloudette


Little Cloud

The Cloud Book


Activity #1: Cloud Mini Books



Using the information we learned from The Coud Book we made our very own simple mini own cloud books.

What You Need:
Cloud Book Template
Shaving Cream
Glue
Cotton Balls
Blue Constuction Paper
Plain White Paper
Silver Glitter Paint (you could just use gray paint or something similar as well)

What To Do:

1. For the Cover we used Puffy Paint to make our clouds! Puffy paint is so much fun! I don't measure but I try to use equal parts shaving cream and glue by eye - it always seems to work well enough anyway!
It came out so cute!


2. Page 1 - Cumulus Clouds
We used puffy cotton balls to make a cloud shape and glued on the wording as we discussed the type of cloud.


3. Page 2 - Cirrus Clouds
We used cotton balls that we pulled apart to make them appear feathery and glued on the wording as we discussed the type of cloud.


Page 3 - Stratus Clouds
Again we used cottong balls for the clouds but we pulled them and tried to make a blanket on the page and then painted them with silver glitter paint so they would look gray & stormy. Finally, we glued on the wording as we discussed the type of cloud.


Here's a peek at all the pages - they must be completely dry before you staple your book together!



Activity #2: Making Words with Letter Tiles (based on the book Little Cloud)


What You Need:
Alphabet Letter Tiles (I'm sre you could also find some sort of printable of these but we have them & they are fun to use!)
Little Cloud Letter Tiles (from Making Learning Fun)

What to Do:
Print out the letter tile cards and supply the correct tiles for younger learners (there are a lot of tiles in the tub and it can get frustrating to search for each letter)

Have fun making the words - be sure to review the letters (recognition) and their sound (phonics practice)




Activity #2: Melissa & Doug See & Spell Puzzles

The girls had so much fun with the letter tiles we took out our Melissa & Doug See & Spell Puzzles to let the fun continue. These puzzles are great!


The box comes with all the letters you will need and 8 double sided wooden boards (16 picttures) with 3 or 4 letter words. This set is great for lowercase letter and common word recognition.

  8. You won't believe the selection of Homewares goods is accessible nowadays! You may find items that cater to every taste and way of life, from fashionable home d├ęcor to functional but fashionable cooking utensils. I like how a bold vase or a warm rug can completely transform a room's aesthetic with just one little item. These are the kinds of thoughtful touches that make interior design a joy to work on.
