Early literacy begins with you. Help your child get ready to read with simple activities you can do any time!

Rain, Rain Go Away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Little (child’s name) wants to play!
Other verses:
Snow and wind

What If?
Ask your child silly questions about the weather: What if there was a big snowstorm during the summer? What if we went swimming in the winter? What if it rained popcorn?

What is the Weather Today?
Keep a chart of the weather each day. Your child can draw a picture of the sun, clouds, rain, or snow. At the end of 2 week or a month count how many sunny, cloudy, rainy, or snowy days you had.

Go Fly A Kite
On a windy day tie a very long string or curling ribbon to one of the handles of a plastic grocery bag. Go outside and let the wind lift the bag in the air, just like a kite.
