A preschool weather theme is a fun and engaging way to celebrate the change in seasons and teach young children about the different types of weather. These fine motor weather activities for preschool are a fantastic way of including hands-on learning opportunities in your lesson plans. Kindergarten, homeschool, and Montessori kids will enjoy learning with these activities too!
Playdough is a staple in early childhood classrooms because it has so many sensory benefits and can be a calming activity for little learners. These weather playdough mats are a fun and engaging way for preschoolers to explore types of weather and create by manipulating dough to form the pictures. Plus, working with dough is wonderful for strengthening and developing fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and creativity!
These bright and engaging weather line tracing cards are a great way of incorporating tracing lines activities into your preschool weather theme. Line tracing is excellent for preschoolers practicing fine motor skills, pencil control, pencil grip, and hand-eye coordination. This prewriting activity is a wonderful way of helping children develop small hand muscles to prepare them for writing and drawing.
Another fantastic fine motor activity is the geoboard! Geoboards are a beloved tool in early childhood math centers. Geoboards consist of a square or rectangular board with pegs that allow children to create geometric shapes and patterns by stretching rubber bands or string around the pegs. They help children develop their spatial reasoning and geometric thinking skills. These weather geoboard pattern cards are bright and colorful, making them super fun for children to learn with!
