Service Description

Would you like to forecast or track the weather from your own home without the Internet, television, or radio? It's easy. Not only can you put together your own weather station, you can build the equipment yourself! Meteorologists, people who study weather, predict weather based on past weather. They track changes in temperature, pressure, humidity, wind, and precipitation. Weather is something we experience first hand all the time, so let’s learn more about it! Making decisions about outdoor activities and what to wear can be a little easier when we know more about the weather that is happening now, and what’s to come later in the day. Learners will be introduced to various weather instruments as we discuss temperature readings, rainfall, as well as wind speed and direction. Then, using a variety of materials, learners will construct their own weather stations. These tools can be taken home so that families can track the weather together! We get to enjoy a short book read aloud during Story Time as we gather for lunch. Learners will have a chance to participate in a casual discussion in which we will share ideas, answer questions, and make connections related to the story. Learners will also be given an opportunity at the end of our session to reflect, record, note, doodle, remember, and share as we create entries in Farmventure Journals. This tutoring session is appropriate for We Play Learners ages 5 and up with all abilities. Activities, instruction, and level of support will be differentiated to meet the needs of individual learners. During this tutoring session, learners will have opportunities for practice and progress in the following areas: Planning - understanding future responsibilities Organization - categorizing items Task Initiation - planning steps to start Attention - maintaining focus on important tasks Metacognition - making changes according to situations and activities Working Memory - recalling necessary information Self-Control - thinking before acting Flexibility - transitioning between activities Perseverance - identifying cause and effect relationships Please don't forget to pack lunch for your learner(s) along with a refillable water bottle! Dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes. Sunscreen and bug spray may also be a good idea as the weather gets warmer. 4/30/2024 10:00am - 12:00pm Tutoring Session at OSF 5/02/2024 10:00am - 12:00pm Tutoring Session at OSF 5/04/2024 10:00am - 12:00pm Tutoring Session at OSF
