    "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs" is such a fun book. The kids love to pretend it can "rain" food. You could have them brainstorm other things they'd like to have fall from the sky, and have them draw a picture of it, or list them on the board and have them copy the list.

    I did this next activity with older students, but you could adapt it for first graders. I have a thunderstorm sounds CD, one of those relaxation soundtracks. I played it for the class with the lights off and their heads down for about five minutes. I told them to visualize the kind of weather that would be happening with the sounds. I turned the CD off, and they wrote a descriptive paragraph of a weather scene, based on the sounds. You could do the same, and have them draw a scene instead of writing it.
