Talking about the weather with young children during the month of March!
Creating blot paintings by folding the paper with multiple folds first then adding the paint…
To extend the weather graphing experience over time, the children help to create a weather caterpillar… Each day, the children add a new circle to their weather caterpillar and discuss the patterns in the weather. As you can see below, the weather pattern is “rainy, rainy, cloudy, cloudy” (AABB)… In the younger classes, the teacher […]

In this class, the children painted their paper plates with yellow tempera paint mixed with salt to give a little sparkle and texture. After the paint dried, the children turned the plates over and added strips […]
