Clouds - Queen of the First Grade Jungle


I wanted this...

Found here at The Techy Teacher.

So I made my own version. Let's be honest-- I will jump for joy if All my kids know the four basic types---cumulus, cirrus, stratus, cumulonimbus-- when we have our assessment.

My kids LOVED them! They have talked about clouds nonstop for a week and a half now! Here is a sweet picture of them together!

And a close-up up with one of my cuties and his "Cloud Frame" in action!

I have a recording sheet HERE!

For some reason I can't save the document to a pdf without it going all crazy on me-- and since I should be off the clock for the weekend--- I don't really feel like fighting it! If you would like a copy of my cloud frame-- shoot me an email at Thank you Gena at The Techy Teacher for the inspiration.
