Little E has been fascinated with the recent storms, so we are doing a weather theme.
Today we did activities relating to Clouds and Rain:
- Colored a Sesame Street picture with a cloud and umbrella.
- Practiced identifying the letter "C" and it's sound.
- Glued cotton balls to cut outs of clouds and the letter C. Then we guled these to a paper and added raindrops and thunder with glitter pens. The glitter pens were the highlight of the morning.
- We learned a new song, sung to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot." Little E liked to wave his cloud in the air while we sang.
You can find me way up high
Sometimes I'm puffy and stretched out
I just love float about."
- Read books:
Little E's favorite was "Little Cloud." He loved identifying the shapes that Little Cloud turned into and was glad when he was re-united with the "Daddy Cloud."
Mommy's favorite was "Stormy Weather." The pictures are adorable and the text is so comforting.
All of this took about an hour and we had fun the whole time. I think an hour is plenty for us.
