Weather Writing

We spend about 30 minutes writing every day. Twenty of these minutes are spent writing on worksheets, and ten of these minutes are spent writing with tactile materials.

In all of my experience, I have learned that children learn more from meaningful experiences than they do with two-dimensional materials, such as paper.

It is for this reason that we write on everything! On walls, the sidewalk, and even the table! We also use EVERYTHING we can find to write: markers, crayons, chalk, play dough, and even mud!

For these two activities, we explored two different letters that corresponded to our month of weather. The first of these letters was C for cloud, and the second of these letters was S for sun. For the cloud portion, we traced letter Cs into flour. A few weeks later, we traced the letter Ss into orange glitter.
