Brightly Beaming Resources Week #15: Rain

This was an easy unit because we live in the part of the country where it is known for rain!  And wouldn't you guess, our fall/winter weather started right on time.  Our vocabulary word was downpour and even though our rain usually is a day long drizzle, we did have a downpour one day.  Our nursery rhyme was Doctor Foster who stepped in a puddle.  Unfortunately we didn't find too many puddles to splash in.  Shrade really enjoyed the books we read for this unit and I thought they were all pretty cute!  Check them out.

Here are some cute books we read:

I love doing our Letter Craft! This week since we learned letter O we made an owl.  I get all my letter craft ideas from No Time for Flashcards.

We also sang this song that learned at Play to Learn. We used our fingers to tap our hands and then at the end we used our hands to make a BIG splashing sound.

"Little Drop of Rain" (tune of If you're happy and you know it)
First a little drop of rain hits the ground
Then another drop of rain hits the ground
Then another and another and another and another
And pretty soon you'll hear a different sound: Splish! Splash!

I love how you tied everything in to your rain theme! The owl craft is really cute Shonda! I'll have to remember that one. :)
