We always sang a weather song at morning meeting. Each day we had a “meteorologist” who would remind us which word to use in the song.

Weather Song (Tune: “My Darlin’ Clementine”)

Sunny, sunny, sunny, sunny,
It is sunny in the sky.
S – u – n – n – y Sunny
It is sunny in the sky.

Hint! Insert other words children suggest such as “foggy,” “muggy,” and so forth.

You’ll find this song and weather graph in our “October Happies.”

Weather Words
Write weather words on a language experience chart and point to the letters as you sing.
*Challenge children to come up with synonyms for different types of weather. For example, sunny could be bright, hot, cloudless, etc.

Place a thermometer outside your classroom window so children can learn how to read the calendar and judge appropriate clothing for outdoor play.

Wind Tester
Make a wind tester by stapling a strip of tissue paper to a straw. Hold it up to see if the wind is blowing. What direction is the wind blowing from?  

*How else can you tell if the wind is blowing?

How Can You Find Out?
Brainstorm different ways to find out about the weather. For example, look on-line, look at the newspaper, watch the weather report on television, look out the window, etc.
