Watch the April Shower clip from Bambi and try making rain sounds using musical instruments and everyday objects like trays, mugs, wooden spoons and metal spoons:

Keep a weather diary
o Compare winter weather to the spring weather. How do we know it is spring? What is the weather like? Talk about different adjectives (describing words) to describe the weather: rainy, cloudy, wet, dry, warm, windy, etc. Explain that the weather is not the same every day. Which types of weather do we think we might have over the next few days?


o Explain that it is not always easy to remember what the weather has been like. We can keep a diary and record our observations.


o Over the next few days, help your child record the weather in words/phrases or sentences on a Weather Diary.
