This preschool Lesson was made possible by the MWS Literacy Bag from our Westmont Public Library. We had a lot of fun discussing the differences and similarities between spiders and other insects. We tried to look for bugs outside...but it is still too cold here. Instead, we hid plastic bugs and played "hot and cold" then we danced like butterflies and wiggled like worms. We did some artwork using our fingerprints to make different kinds of insects by adding 6 or 8 legs.
Opening Activity: Reading exercises- Sight Words, Phonics Chart, "You Read to me and I'll Read to you" book.

Weather Wiz Kids
Tornado Tubes and Weather Bags
Inside the weather bag was a straw and cotton ball to show how wind pushes the clouds (blow the cotton balls with the straws), a tornado tube (swirl it and watch a tornado appear), mint life savers to show how lightning works (chew them in the dark with your mouth open and see sparks), and a brown paper bag to show how thunder works (blow it up and pop it!)
