Teaching our kids about the weather and the different seasons is pretty fun, and I try and do this most days to help Henry get to know the different changes to the weather, so he knows when it is raining or becomes a little chilly that we must wear a jumper and a coat to protect ourselves from getting wet and cold, and when it sunny to put on sun cream and no need for a coat or jumper.
To help my son I created from looking on Google Images, a weather chart and a seasonal chart, and I have even as requested by his school as part of his homework, bought Henry a Diary, to use this a Weather Diary.
The next chart I am going to make is about a chart about the yearly holidays to help him get to know these too.
Here is Henry’s weather chart above, which is pretty easy to make, I just used plain white card or you can use paper, got the images from clipart and google images, created the charts on Microsoft Publisher I have version 2017, Eliminated the paper using my laminator and laminator Paper, Velcro stickers, purchased from Rymans. You can get a box of Velcro stickers for about £4.99, and some scissors to cut out the images.
I also created Henry a Seasonal chart to help him identify that this season is Autumn, next its Winter, then spring and then summer again.
I think it important for our kids to know about the seasons, so again they learn what to wear during the colder seasons and what to wear and put on when it is warmer.
As part of Henry’s homework, we are gonna take Henry out to the Common to pick up concores, pine cones and leaves, to help see the different colours of the leaves as it gets colder, the different birds that come out and objects that are created during the different seasons.
Learning should be made fun, as it helps stop you from getting frustrated and from your children from becoming bored as learning from experience, some children’s attention span isn’t always that long, and so making it as interesting and fun as possible is the key.
So lets get our kids learning and help build up their knowledge and experiences.
Please remember you can keep up to date with my blogs by following me on WordPress.com and if you too have made charts for your kids or have another way of which your kids learn, I would love to hear from you, as it is always good to share. Please leave a comment below.
