Weather units are a critical part of a primary grade classroom’s science curriculum. Anchor charts are used universally in homeschools and classrooms, but we here at The Classroom Creative think that these classroom must-haves need a twist: they should be interactive.
By making anchor charts interactive, students manipulate the words as opposed to static anchor charts that focus on visual and auditory modalities. The beauty of these weather vocabulary cards is that they are digital resource, so if you lose a card, simply reprint them!
You could have students sort these cards by syllables, ABC order, color, etc. You could even take a focus word like “sunny” and extend it by having your class list rhyming words. Students could also access these weather words for science or writing centers.
Weather Vocabulary Anchor Chart
- poster board
- sharpie marker
- watercolor pencils
- dot velcro
- weather word wall pack (I used the minicards)
- Freehand a cloud.
- Outline in Sharpie.
- Use a blue watercolor pencil to shade the cloud.
- Using a damp brush, pull the color from the watercolor pencil.
- Laminate and cut the weather word wall cards.
- Adhere velcro to the back.
- Introduce the words slowly to your class as you begin your weather units!
