If you like this pack, could you please take a moment to
“favorite” my Teacher’s Notebook store? Thanks!
This 35 page pack offers all sorts of activities for a 3 – 5 year old.  (Even my 2.5 year old son can do quite a few activities.)  Here are a few sample pages:
april showers bible versewater cycle april counting cards april findtheletter  beginning sounds magnet page ordinal numbers
I’m don’t know how I feel about the water cycle page.  It could be better…or different…or…something.  I’m not sure.  I just knew I wanted to use it with my own son, so I included it.  The water cycle page also helped to tie in the Bible verse that I chose to go along with this unit.
ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
I don’t have a favorite water cycle book.  We’ll just be using what we can find at home and at the local library.  Here are some books found at Amazon.com that may help you with your unit.  We do own Franklin Branley’s “Down Comes The Rain”, which I’ve included in the widget below.
Two Teaching Mommies have some great resources for a spring/rain unit:
For more great pages, including a very nice water cycle printable, raindrop counting book, and umbrella color book: http://www.2teachingmommies.com/2012/03/spring-rain-color-count-and-water-cycle.html
