Weather Portfolios

We did a unit on weather right before Spring Break and my kiddos had a blast. Our class weather chart came out really adorable. They did a lot of different writing activities and I love incorporating poetry wherever possible.  The Important Writing was my favorite using one of my favorite books, The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown.  We discussed the following cloud types- cumulus, cumulonimbus, stratus, and cirrus.  Then, my students chose their favorite type of cloud to write a cloud poem about. The Rainbow Simile Activity was an idea I loved from Fabulous Firstie's Blog.
