manipulatives - teacher prints, laminates, and cuts. You

their desk or in a pocket chart. You may choose to
give a set to each student or use as a group
activity. The student must match the raindrop to
the umbrella.(1-3) If you do not have the CDROM, you can
create a center like this. Find a die cut of an umbrella
and raindrop. Place a match problem on the raindrop and
the answer on the umbrella. Have the sudents match.

Weather Poems and Songs
Long As There's Weather
With a Chance of Meatballs
~ Before Reading - Discuss and define the following types of weather: snow, fog, rain, tornado, hurricane, and flood. Place these terms on index cards. As the word is discussed place it in a pocket chart. Have students illustrate the six words in their journal.
~ After Reading - Relate different types of weather that we have discussed and defined to the different food disasters in the book. You may want the students to fill in sentence strips such as:
In the book _________
looked like snow.
~ Have students write their own story. Maybe something besides food falls from the sky!
~ Have each student share their favorite part. They can create a poster showing their favorite part of the story. They will then show the class their poster and discuss why this was their favorite part.
~ Give students newspapers and have them cut out weather words and pictures. Have them make a collage on construction paper.
~ Ask students if they would enjoy living in a place like Chewandswallow. Then list the positive and negative aspects of living in such a place.
