Cloud Day

Language Arts Lesson
for Cloud Day

The students will write and present a fictitious weather report, after listening to "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" by Judi Barrett.




  1. Read the story "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" by Judi Barrett.  If it is not available, have a discussion on what it would be like if items other than water fell from clouds.

  2. Working in pairs, have the students write their weather reports using the Weather Report Worksheet or plain paper.  Tell them to include the temperature, what the clouds look like, what type of items are falling from the sky, and any other weather related "facts".  For younger children, the whole class can work together to write a report.  The teacher can record their work on large chart paper.

  3. Have the pairs of students present their weather report to the rest of the class.

Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Do a phonics lesson on the "cl" or "ou" sound.

  2. Discuss the terms "his head is in the clouds", "he's in a fog", "he's on cloud nine", "every cloud has a silver lining".  Have the students write about any of these topics.  For example, a time they were so happy they felt like they were on cloud nine, or a time something bad happened but something good came out of it.

  3. Have the students write stories about what it would be like to be able to play on the clouds.

  4. Have a lesson on describing words for clouds - fluffy, white, etc.

  5. Go outside and observe the clouds.  Have the students identify clouds that look like certain objects.  Have them write a story about what they see.
