A weather station theme help us introduce our little ones not only to the idea of weather, but also to the concepts of temperature, weather patterns and daily changes. We live in the deep south... so no snow here. But our kiddos loved learning about snow, rain, sleet... the topics are endless.
Our little meteorologists enjoyed giving us the weather report daily. This time of the day is when one of our students assume the leadership role for the day. What a great opportunity to teach them how to behave and become comfortable speaking in front of a crowd!
We had them ask Siri what the weather is going to be like that day. They ask if there will be any rain, snow, etc in the area. Sometimes they ask what the weather is like in other parts of the country too.
Once again, we expose our little preschoolers to environmental print.
During free play, we have a TV studio where they can re-enact the weather report for the day. They absolutely loved the experience.
The weather station theme provides a wonderful background for the color week... but that is a topic for another post. ;)
