Using the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, I suggest book cues on first and second readings to help accentuate vocabulary words. I include effect post reading activities. I also have included many activities that could be used in the normal class day or in centers. These include a short and simple math activity, science center, technology standards, and art ideas. This lesson plan was designed with third grade in mind and would be an excellent addition to a unit on weather.
