Happy Wednesday - middle of the school week - we are in the thick of it...cloud thickness that is..lol...a new theme for Wednesdays in April...
Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!

Weather - Music
After we sung this I asked the children - "What would you like to fall from the sky?" - Zachary said Root Beer, Molly said M & M's and Sammie said Mac and Cheese - thinking we will be watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs this week!
This is our Memory Song for the week. (Scholastic)
Our Read out Loud - Frog Rain
(it does, sort of - in Puerto Rico)
Early in the morning, tiny one-inch frogs called coquis jump from the trees and fall to the
ground with a plop, plop.
(Ladybug Magazine April 2013)
This week has all been about clouds, rain and the water cycle. Next week - extreme weather and a fun time with gardening.
