Weather Watchers

Science

We are starting the weather part of our unit! Be sure and talk about weather daily. Vocabulary words and concepts are calm, clear, cloudy, foggy, icy, windy, weather, windy, season, sunny, temperature, thermometer, and meteorologist. Help them remember that the thermometer is the science tool. The temperature is a measurement of how hot or cold it is.

AuthorStudy of Pat Mora

Discuss with your children which books we are reading, The Desert is my Mother, Tomas and the Library Lady and more. We will continue to write our opinions while supporting them with the text. We will discuss character and setting. We will make predictions based on what we have read. We wil also write about the theme of her writing; what Pat Mora wants us to think about or a lesson to learn.

Brrrrrr...Cold Weather

We go out side daily if temperatures are above 32 degrees (or wind chill of 32 degrees). Please send coats with your children. In the case of inclement weather check the district website for closures. If you child is missing a coat, please email your child's teacher so we can make sure they look at lost and found.
