I created this weather chart to use in my kindergarten classroom during our daily calendar time. The chart features six types of weather that are most common during the school year in my part of New England: sunny, foggy, snowy, rainy, cloudy, and partly cloudy. Every day, my students and I read the question at the top of the chart ("What is the weather today?") and decide how to answer. We then move the little card so that the proper picture and word are showing through the window, and read the answer ("It is sunny".
Showing the word and picture together helps the students to acquire weather vocabulary on several levels -- some are just looking at the pictures, some are noticing the first letter of each word, and some are developing recognition of the whole word. We also take time as a class every few days to notice the sight words on our chart -- it, is, the, what -- and to talk about the meaning of the question mark.
