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.
We are living in very strange times and your child might have a worry which they have not talked about with you. This calming activity gives you and your child the chance to talk and write a letter to someone, a worry or a hope down (with your help!), pump up a balloon, attach it to the letter and then watch it float away off high into the sky .....
