It Looked Like Spilt Milk

Happy Monday! Well my cloud post is a couple days late.. better late than never right? We were busy beavers this weekend with a cookout on Friday night.. and Saturday was E's birthday, so we spent the day together in Nashville shopping and went out to eat. We also enjoyed some tasty Gigi's cupcakes! Yum! Nothing says happy birthday like a Gigi's cupcake! We had a good weekend...and I sure wasn't ready for Monday to roll around.

Now for all things clouds....

We began learning about clouds by reading this little book..


We then discussed the three main types of clouds and made this chart...


Next, we read this book....


And completed this too cute activity from Made For 1st Grade.


This one looked like me! Spitting image! :)






We made these cloud flip books. This cute idea came from Anna Brantley.



This next activity was pinterest inspired. We discussed that when clouds get heavy with water it rains.



We also learned all about the water cycle.. Thanks to Brainpop, Jr. :) No photos for this though.

Well, that's all I got for tonight friendsw.

Very cute.
We released our butterflies today and it was so pretty outside that we stayed out for a little bit, laid in the grass and looked at the clouds....
it was very relaxing!
