This craftivity was designed to go with the book, The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond. This activity is not associated with the book and does not contain the story. The book is not necessary to have to complete the activity.
Included in this packet is an umbrella template, hearts, and labels. After you read the story, have your students create their own umbrella and cut out hearts. You can target just about any goal with this activity. Here are a few examples:
“Today it Rained /r/ words in speech!”
“Today it rained nouns in speech!”
“Today it rained conjunctions in speech!”
“Today it rained pronouns in speech!”
Write a target word on each heart. These are great classroom decorations!
