Let's Learn About Weather & Seasons!

Updated: Oct 7, 2020

As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.

This month we're learning about Weather & Seasons and we're all super excited!

Today we learned about clouds and made cloud art, played with our weather Touch and Play Display, explored a fun water bead sensory bin, and so much more.

Each month, Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) sends us a brand new calendar, and this year we thought we'd do something a bit different with it.

We set up our calendar display on a small dry erase board so that it can sit on the floor with us during circle time.

The brand new Touch and Play Displays from Experience Early Learning are wonderful! The preschoolers love them. This month, the display is What's the Weather? And there's a cute weather song that goes with it.

Another favorite was this really cool cloud art. Each child poured white paint onto their paper, folded the paper in half, and then tried to figure out what their "clouds" looked like.

It was lots of fun! The preschoolers had a wonderful time imagining what their cloud art could be.

Process art is a great way to encourage creative thinking and problem-solving skills.

Making open-ended art allows children to explore different materials and materials and the wonderful activities that are part of each Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) preschool curriculum kit are no exception.

We also made Cloudy Art using paint and eyedroppers and did the classic science experiment where you fill a glass with water, add shaving cream, and then slowly drip food coloring onto it.

After a while, the shaving cream cloud gets so heavy that it "rains." The children loved this quick and easy rain cloud demonstration.

Don't forget to stop back next week to see what we're up to with Seasons!
