Clouds In Our Classroom

It's so much fun to lay on the grass in our play yard at school and watch the clouds float by.
This was the inspiration for a whole unit on clouds.

Types of clouds identification and classifying.
Cloud push pin work.






Cloud books from our local library...



Some more cloud work in our practical life area. The sewing a cloud pillow was off the shelf being used when I snapped this photo.




Painting clouds with a clothespin and cotton ball. Excellent fine motor practice.



Painting clouds with a "dot painter". Great for Toddlers and younger threes, although the older children enjoy the work as well.

I love this Clouds post. We did a simple introductory activity but these activities are great extensions. Sorry if I missed any printables. Are there links? Thank you!!
