Year one students are emerging writers. They’re learning to string letters together to form words, words into sentences, and sentences into stories. They’re also learning that ideas for stories are all around them—even right outside the window.
Christina Rosetti, a famous poet, once described clouds as “white sheep on a big hill.” Clouds can take on as many different shapes and personalities as the imagination allows. What will your kindergartener imagine when she looks at the clouds? You don’t need a cloudy day to find out. Create this quick and easy craft with your child, and then let his imagination float free as a cumulus cloud as he writes about it!
