 What’s the Weather?☀️🌧 🎶 


This last week we did so many fun Learning Activities with Experience Early Learning Curriculum . Our Theme this month is Weather and Seasons and today I am sharing some of the Activities we did. 
I am so thankful for the opportunity to use  Experience Early Learning Curriculum with my students and to share our experiences on my blog. 
In exchange for my unbiased and honest reviews Experience Early Learning has provided me with the curriculum free of charge.
I have used Experience Early Learning Curriculum in my Classroom since 2017. This Curriculum has been a True Blessing for me and my students! ❤️

This week in school we learned about different changes that take place in our surrounding environment . The children learned about the leaves changing colors , cycle of night & day, hibernation and migration. The children were excited to learn a big word like Hibernation and to go home and tell their parents all about it. See more below.



Our Nature Walk
On Tuesday Morning we went on a Nature Walk. It was a nice Fall Morning. The Temperature wasn’t cool but it was comfortable. The children were excited to run around and collect leaves, small sticks and any acorns they could find.


The children had a great time! Now they had enough nature items to make their Creative Art Project.


 



Learning About Hibernation 

Creative Art Time 
 
Making a Bear Den


The children learned that hibernating animals sleep in the winter. They also learned that a hibernating animal’s breathing and heart rate slow down.
Many animals sleep in a protected home, such as a den.



 For Creative Art the children made a Bear Den. They used the nature items they had collected outside along with a paper bag to create the den. They used markers to decorate the den and glue for their Bear & nature items. 
The Bear Dens looked so cute and creative.



Small Group Math
How Many Are Sleeping?



With this game the children rolled the pocket cube and identified the number. They then placed that many Bear Counters on the bed. We put 2 Bed Cards Together making it enough for 12 Bear Counters Each. Whichever child filled their 2 cards first was the winner. 🧸 🛌 🧸 🛌 
We also sang the song “Twelve Teds in a Bed”  🎶 







Meteorologist 
Weather Wheel 


This last week we also learned about the Meteorologist. The children learned they help predict the weather, including possible storms.
They use pictures and charts to show different types of weather.
For Creative Art the children made a Weather Wheel.



They drew weather pictures on their weather wheels.



They drew pictures for Wind, Sun, Rain and Clouds.



The children love pretending to be the Teacher in the Library Center Every Day so I set up the Weather Wheel for Them. They loved ❤️ it! ❄️⛅️☀️🌧



 Is it Windy?   Is it Sunny?   Is it Rainy?   Is it Cloudy?

Fall, Winter, Summer and Spring 



This last week we did so many fun Learning Activities with Experience Early Learning Curriculum . Our Theme this month is Weather and Seasons and today I am sharing some of the Activities we did.

Circle Time and Music Time 
Each day during Circle Time one of the things we go over is Seasons. We discuss how many seasons there are in a year  . What their names are. What kind of weather there usually is for each season. What kind of clothes we wear for each season. Since we go over the seasons every day the children soon recognize the season words. This last week the children were very excited to do the  activities included in the curriculum for seasons. We had so much fun! 

Here is a Fun Song for Summer 
To the tune Frere Jacques
In the summer, in the summer,
Green birds sing, green birds sing.
1,2,3,4,5,6,
7,8,9, and 10
Fly to green, fly to green.



This last week our Topics for Learning were: 
Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring and Seasonal Clothing 

This is a Creative Art Activity the children completed.


 
Fall Leaves 
We discussed the colors of Fall! The children told me that they see orange, red, yellow, brown and green leaves outside. In our sensory and dramatic play center the children can gather leaves 🍃 🍁 and pine cones. 
I asked the children “How do you know it is Fall”?
Their answer was “It is Fall, because leaves are falling.”
The children loved painting the leaf creations with fall color paints and the leaf shape stencil.





Matching Weather 



What goes together?
During this game the children matched 
the correct cards that belonged together.
Such as:
Sunglasses goes with Sun
Umbrella goes with Rain
Snowsuit goes with Snow 
I started with putting the cards face down but I changed the cards to face up and let them make the matches that way. 
It was more enjoyable for the children to see the photos instead of guessing.
They enjoyed playing this game of classification.






Letter Nn
Last week our letter of the week was Letter Nn. 



The children traced Upper and Lower Case Nn. They made the letter Nn Sound. They did a N Craft. I read them a Nn Story. Then we saw what was in  the Nn Suitcase.




We had so much fun learning about the letter Nn.



Wake Up Spring!
Nature wakes up in the Spring.
The snow starts to melt as the air becomes warmer. Plants start budding. birds start chirping. bears crawl out of dens and flowers bloom.  
 
For Creative Art  the children made a
 Blooming Flower Puppet



It turned out Adorable! They made their flowers and colored the cups. Then they added the grass. 

 We helped them to add a straw to make it a blooming flower puppet.



They loved their flower puppets!
