Toddler Playschool: W is for Weather {free printable}

Pin It
We're getting close to ending our weekly journey through the alphabet in our Toddler Playschool. Because we live in the Midwest and get a variety of the seasons (sometimes two in one week), it seemed like weather would be a suitable and interesting topic for the W week. It provides so many learning prompts that are different, yet connected for young learners to explore. Check out our weather activities for toddlers and our free letter W lesson plan printable below.
 
 
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

You Are My Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
--Jimmie Davis
 
The Clouds are Passing By
(tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
The clouds are passing by,
The clouds are passing by,
Heigh-ho, just watch them go,
The clouds are passing by.

The clouds are passing by,
Way up in the sky,
Sometimes fast, sometimes slow,
The clouds are passing by.

 --Jean Warren

 
Literacy
W Page for Alphabet Book
Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
