Activity: Conversing

Ask the students about what it is like outside. What do they see? Is it raining? sunny?...

Have them tell you exactly what they think and talk about this and why it is right or wrong.

Student Instructions

Talk about what it is doing outside. Raining? Sunny? Cloudy? Talk about this with the class.

2 Direct Instruction

Activity: Presenting

Show pictures of different weather scenarios and talk about each one. When you talk about each one stop and ask each student to first say what is happening in the picture. See if they can tell what is going on first.
