WEATHER ANNOUNCER
Give your child the job of weather announcer in your family. Make up a set of weather cards from index cards or white paper squares. Draw a simple picture of different types of weather on each card. Give the cards to your child and have him check the weather each day and place the correct weather cards (or cards) on the refrigerator or window sill.

 
WEATHER CLOTHES GAME
To play this game, you will need one or two articles of clothing for each weather situation in this game

Examples: SUNNY - bathing suit and sunglasses
WINDY - scarf and windbreaker
RAINY - boots and an umbrella
SNOWY - mittens and a ski cap

To play this game you can use the weather cards from the previous game. Shuffle the cards and place them upside-down on a table. Have your child draw a card and then find one or two pieces of clothing that would be worn during that weather.
 

WEATHER SPELLING SONG
A great spelling game for young children is to spell five lettered words in versions of the song "Bingo".

Example: There's a weather, that I love and SUNNY is it's name-o.
S-U-N-N-Y, S-U-N-N-Y, S-U-N-N-Y and SUNNY is it's name-o.

Continue with verses about the other types of weather mentioned above.
