Changing Seasons Brings a Weather Lesson for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Early Elementary Students

I remember being in the classroom around this time of year with my students and thinking “What age appropriate lesson will help them understand the change of seasons?”  Living in Florida we don’t necessarily understand nor do we get to experience the changing of the seasons.  I would always have leaves from our Northern relatives pressed in wax paper, pictures of the fall foliage, and clips of life in other climates readily available for these lessons!

Let’s enjoy together our Weather Song / Canción de tiempo off our Sing Along with Boca Beth music CD this week as the backdrop to our weather lesson fun ideas.  Share an idea with us below, and be entered to win this Boca Beth CD plus two other bilingual treats from me!

The Weather / El tiempo (English and Spanish Foundations Series) (Book #6) (Bilingual) (Board Book) (English and Spanish Edition)

Here’s a cute bilingual book to help with bringing this lesson to life!

And another cute one for kids of a young age!

Stay tuned as the week goes along for other resources, a fun science experiment designed for the younger crowd, and more!

Happy Educating!  ¡Sea feliz educando!

    We don’t have lots of pretty leaves here in my part of Texas either, and although it’s fall, it isn’t really very cool. We’re doing a unit on Fall/Halloween here right now though, and are relying heavily on books to show us things that aren’t readily available here. Three of our favorite books about fall and leaves are “Leaves! Leaves! Leaves!” by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace, “Autumn Leaves,” by Ken Robbins, and “Why do Leaves Change Color?” by Betsy Maestro.

    Today we played the game four corners outside, because we are having unseasonably warm weather. Instead of numbers I used the 4 seasons written in each of four corners. One child called out a season as the other children got into one of the squares. If your season was called you sat down. The last child standing called in the next game.

    My preschoolers learned calor and frio and viento. They each had a paper fan (calor) and snowflake (frio) and a leaf (viento) When they heard each word they used the correct prop.
