Here is the song:
What’s the weather? What’s the weather?
What’s the weather like today?
Tell us (name of child here) what’s the weather, what’s the weather like today?
Is it sunny, is it rainy is it cloudy out today?
Is it snowy? Is it windy? What’s the weather like today?
Here is the game:
I invited the kids up one at a time to spin the spinner and place the corresponding flannel piece on the board above our Groundhog. Then we decided together if the Groundhog would see his shadow or not and if that meant spring was on the way or winter was sticking around for a little longer. Everyone did a great job and of course they loved spinning the spinner and getting to touch the flannel pieces!
