The Weather Station
The Weather Station is a fun interactive product that allows the teacher and children sit in a circle to count and play with the different math concepts. They engage in activities where they discuss the days of the week, months of the year, seasons, and different types of weather. This product includes many different types of weather, weather tools and holidays. There is lots to be discussed.
There is a school of thought that young children do not understand the concept of time and we should not be teaching it. I am of the school of thought that we are called teachers for a reason. We provide students with information. Callendar time can be taught many different ways. Theses materials should be displayed in the classroom, or provided in centers/stations where children have the opportunity to discuss and interact with the vocabulary and concepts. I believe children should be exposed to the language, and the concepts. We provide them with the information. They play with it, juggle it inside of their heads, and use it when they are ready.

Types of Weather
There are many activities that take place during circle time. This is the time when the teacher lays the foundation for the rest of the day. During this time the teacher gently infuses the use of Science, Technology, Engineering Art and Math into the daily classroom activities. Using the weather station and the farm as a backdrop there are many opportunities to implement STEAM concepts and activities. The weather station teaches the students that there are different types of weather and tools to measure each. The people places and things on a farm. Help students to be aware how the different people, animals, insects and interact. The tools needed on the farm and to measure the weather help to foster mathematical concepts, engineering and technology. This is a fun way to allow students to see how their lives are impacted by what happens on a farm.
