Lesson Plan - Weather

Here is our weekly Lesson Plan for Weather Week. Feel free to copy and modify this to fit your teaching style, and level! Please note: this lesson plan is not "instead of" but "in addition to" our regular daily pre-school activities. I only plan themed activities for 3 days a week, the other 3 days that we do 'pre-school' time with our children we use their regular activities unmodified for the weekly theme. To see our regular schedule click here.
