Weather, The Wizard, and Currently!!

This is what the sky looked like the day we went out to cloud watch!!! Amazing! 
I just pointed my camera up, and 
OH, MY, GOODNESS!! It took my breath away! Beautiful!
 The rest of this post pales in comparison...

Working in groups to create Water Cycles


The Wizard of Oz
We are reading The Wizard of Oz during our Weather unit!
 I found these 3 copies of this classic. 
1) The top left one is my personal childhood book and the one I'm 
    using as a read aloud. It has been well loved. 
2) The top right is a picture book and great for all first graders. 
3) The bottom book is a Stepping Stones chapter book. I like it for
    those independent readers, but the language is not as descriptive
   as our read aloud.

 Since the kids are SO into The Wizard of Oz, I created a little Number Game they could play independently. It's played like UNO, but with characters instead of colors. They are LOVING it!! I will definitely make more of these!
I took this pic before all the cards were cut out.
It will be on TpT and TN this week-a little behind...
More Weather later this week, too!
