Mr. North Wind

Recall what it’s like to be outside during a winter snow storm, and on a breezy sunny day.

Discussion point: We need to be gentle, and not like stinging ice crystals.

To reinforce your lessons on gentleness, ask your children to close their eyes and use their imaginations as your describe two contrasting weather situations. Here are some sample descriptions:

Think of the coldest winter day you can imagine. The wind is blowing hard, carrying sharp ice crystals and snowflakes that sting as they cut into your cheeks. Now think of a mild, spring day. The sun is shining. There is just a gentle breeze blowing, barely strong enough to lift your hair. It touches your face softly.
