Last Friday we had a beautiful sunny day to head out
on a cloud hunt.
Our Nature Bags were packed with a cloud viewer
found at E is for Explore, clipboard, blue paper,
cotton balls and a glue stick.
Before heading out we enjoyed Eric Carle’s
book “Little Cloud”.
We walked across the school yard and set up some mats
so we could sit back and study the clouds.
I listened as the grown ups talked with their children about the
names of the clouds and how you could tell if the weather was
going to be good or if it was going to rain.
Then they dug out their cotton balls, paper and glue
and started to build their own clouds; rockets, cats, big and fluffy.
Then I shared one more book called “A Sky Full of Clouds”. The children
took a smaller copy home.
Clouds come and go, change shape and help us imagine.
