A lovely little weather book…

Weather is a simple science concept for young children to observe, experience and interact with. Each day the weather brings a new opportunity to talk about with young children; it allows them to observe changes, understand different types of weather and concepts that they can see – wind.
Kin Eagle’s story-song book, It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, is a great resource for circle-time/anytime/science. Miss Shari found this little gem in a local library – its popularity among several classes over the past few years led to a permanent place in our classroom library. It’s perfect for a rainy day or a sunny day.
It’s cute little rhymes about all types of weather – rain, wind, sun, snow, rain – is a hit among the children. It also is a great rhyming, phonics and recall literacy tool for the children. They are engaged in song, language, interaction and ask frequently to read it and sing through the pages.
Enjoy your seasons and weather,
