Invitation to Learn
Make a “rainstorm.” Start at one side of the room, rubbing your hands together. Have all the students in front of you do the same. Move across the room. Have more students join in as you pass in front of them or their row. When you get to the other side of the room, have students continue rubbing while you return to where you started. This time, snap your fingers. Have the students in the row in front of you join in. Move across the room again. As you pass each row, those students should start snapping. Go back to where you started. Repeat the process with slapping thighs then stomping feet. As the “storm” dies down, repeat the process backwards going from stomping to slapping to snapping to rubbing.
Glue cotton balls on top of paint to make the pictures 3-D.
Have students work in pairs to produce pages.
Keep a journal of cloud observations at home. What did they look like? Did they bring storms?
Can the student create his or her own original text in the style of the story?
