National Umbrella Day is celebrated across the nation each year on February 10th. On this day, we honor one of the world's most useful inventions, the umbrella! Not only does the umbrella help keep us dry from the rain, but it also protects us from the heat of the sun. Umbrellas can also be used as a fashion accessory.

But what do umbrellas have to do with teaching young children?  Wouldn't golf umbrellas create a safe bubble for individual children?  You could also suggest parents do this at home to provide their child with an alternative place to learn virtually.  And, after Covid, wouldn't it be fun to put some special books to create a reading nook?

What else?

Introduce other names for umbrellas, such as parasol and brolly (British).

What are some different types of umbrellas? (paper cocktail umbrellas, patio umbrellas)

What are some different uses for umbrellas? (shade on a sunny day, cane, carry things, protection)

Write 4 facts about umbrellas.

Write how you would feel if you were an umbrella.

Let children use the scrap box to design their own umbrellas.

P.S. Tomorrow is "Don't Cry over Spilled Milk Day." Discuss what that statement means and encourage the children to give examples.
