See Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter posts. I spent a lot more time on each individual season with the younger kids (PreK and K). I didn’t feel my 3rd grader needed so much concentrated attention on seasons. Next we will start to talk about various weather conditions.
Workbox Wednesday next week will be Clouds/Rain activities for the little kiddos. I was going to post it this week, but there are only 2 days of ‘school’ this week and I ran out of lamination!
