Flannel Friday: Weather

Today’s flannelboard came from While She Naps, which I found on Pinterest.

Free templates for this flannelboard are available on Abby’s website (and she has a ton of other patterns for crafts available for purchase as well).

I will be using this flannelboard with the song:

“What’s the Weather?” (Tune: Clementine)
What’s the weather, what’s the weather,
What’s the weather, everyone?
Is it windy, is it cloudy,
Is there rain, or is there sun?

    Very nicely done! I think my favorite is the one with the gray cloud, the rain drops, and the lightening bolt.

    Here in Florida, we would probably be using the Sun one ALL the time. LOL!

    Hope you have beautiful weather for the weekend!

    Hi Katie,

    we sing a weather song with some actions that is very popular.

    It goes like this: I found it some time ago in the MAILBOX magazine.

    Oh, what kind of weather do we have today?
    (Hands up , asking motion) CLAP, CLAP!

    Is it sunny ?( hands, arms overhead)

    Is it rainy, dark and gray?
    ( hands coming down , fingers wiggling for rain) CLAP, CLAP!

    Is it cold? ( Wrap arms around your middle, shiver)

    Is it hot? ( Swipe hand across forhead)

    Should I wear a hat? ( Hands on head)

    Or not? ( Hands off head)

    Oh, what kind of weather do we have today?
    (Hands up , asking motion) CLAP, CLAP!

    We follow the weather song up with a weather helper coming up to the magnetic board.
    The weather helper helps us decide which thermometer we should choose ( I made cards with pictures of thermometers, weather at the Jan Brett site.) We discuss the mercury in the thermometer, if they have one at home, where it is located, ect. Super vocab builder!
    The weather helper then lines up their choice of weather cards ( sometimes funny!) The weather helper then tells the group what her/his prediction for the weather is, tells us to have a nice day, takes a bow, receives an applause and returns to seat on carpet.

    This activity builds many early literacy skills and is loved by everyone.

    Have fun, keep playing and learning!

    Miss Sue
