Bringing New Life to Old Products

In preparation for this week's Thematic Thursday,
which will be all about
WEATHER,

I spent this rainy day revamping some of my weather files.

I have come a 
L.O.N.G  W.A.Y.
in my product designs!

Sometimes when I look at my older stuff, especially the covers
(or lack thereof,)
I cringe.

So today I worked on these old babies...

Weather Word Sort – Common Core Aligned   These weather related word cards can be used for an open sort, or sorted according to the picture header cards. The important thing is for the kids to be able to justify why they have sorted the words the way that they have chosen. After they sort have them share their justifications with a partner or the class. The activity can be done whole group, or the cards can be laminated and used as a center activity. The file includes word cards, both sorted and unsorted, header picture cards, and recording sheets.



I even made pinnable images for each one!

While I was at it, I made this file too.

The Important Thing About Clouds   I love to use Margaret Wise Brown’s The Important Book as a springboard for students to demonstrate their knowledge of important information during a unit of study. Using The Important Thing format is a fun and creative way to assess student learning in a variety of subject areas. For this one, start by having students brainstorm what they have learned so far about this topic. Next, have them think of the most important details about clouds. Have them complete the frame provided and then illustrate their page. Completed pages can then be displayed on a bulletin board or bound together to create a class book. I have included a matching cover for the class book or display.

Needless to say,
I didn't get any of the other things on my list done today,
but at least I was productive!

Make sure to come back on Thursday 
to see all the weather goodies I have in store for you!
