Weather Kids file folders that can be used in a variety of ways and can be used repeatedly with different kinds of weather so that the student could work on the skill throughout the year without memorizing the answers. You can use it to make a file folder game in which you change the weather card and the student has to dress the boy or girl to match the weather. You could also use it to have a student or students have a weather kid of their own to dress during circle or morning meeting. This allows each student to practice the skill daily instead of just one student being the weather helper and each student having a chance every week or every month. There are 2 boys and 2 girls in this set with different skin color, clothing, rain boots, snow boots, a coat, a sweater, swimsuits, shoes, a snow shovel, an umbrella, and sunglasses.

These tasks can be used to teach the following Common Core Standards
